Our next meeting, 23rd January 2020, making wooden toys and puzzles on the lathe.

Our next meeting is on the 23rd January 2020, it’s being organised by Douglas Stewart and it will be on the theme of making wooden toys and puzzles using a lathe. Douglas had arranged for 5 turners to be working the lathes but 1 of those can’t now make it so we will have 4 turners, those are Douglas Stewart, Bill Munro, John Ruickbie and Nick Simpson. Douglas is looking for a replacement and may well have someone else by the time we get to Thursday.

What each turner will be doing is still to be determined but I’m sure there will be lots of interest in everything they are to do.

If you are interested in making toys mainly on the lathe then this is a book I would recommend.
Here is a web site that also displays a lot of interesting toys, like these very decorative skipping ropes.

We hope to see you all there on Thursday evening and hope you enjoy the toy making experience.

For those who still have their subscription for 2020 to pay, Geoff Potter will be there to collect your payment.

To all the committee members, a reminder that there will be a committee meeting starting at 5.30pm on the 23rd January 2020 prior to the main meeting,
