Our meeting this week Thursday 2nd March 2023 is a demonstration by Alec Mutch, I will be making an end grain turned vase using green timber and the use of a light source, this will be a solo presentation by me and you will all get a seat.
I have done one of these for the club some time back, 31st October 2019, but with all the new members who have joined our club since then I felt it was time to repeat this programme.
Here are a few pictures from that event on the 31st October 2023 to remind those who have seen it before, and to those who have not seen this being done I hope you find it interesting.
I do hope you find my demonstration both educational and entertaining, I will be bringing a few other end grain turnings with me, the purpose is to show the effects of good and bad design, I think the design of any item is very important and should be uppermost in your mind when designing your turnings.
Also in this report I can tell you that we had another Training Evening on Thursday 23rd February 2023, this was organized by Nick Simpson, there were 3 lathes in use for this training session, I was on lathe 2 with Paul Hibberd working on his bowl technique. David Ross was on lathe 3 with Stephen Dunphy working on using a skew chisel. Nick Simpson was on lathe 4 with Daniel Stewart working on a small bowl and a small scoop, assessing Daniels standard of work. All 3 pupils were assessed as progressing well.
We are looking to have a good turnout, and do remember the closing date for re-joining the club in 2023 is the 28th February 2023. The usual raffles will be on sale and there will be coffee available for a small donation.
