Our next meeting on 03-03-2022, a demonstration by Nick Simpson.

Start time 6.45pm.

Our meeting this week on Thursday 3rd March 2022 is going to be a demonstration by Nick Simpson, Nick is going to show you how to make a tricylinder from a piece of wood. For those who are unfamiliar with the the term Tricylinder, I have put a couple of pictures up for you to see. These Tricylinders are in effect where a series of pipes would have intersected were they made of metal, Nick’s Tricylinder is made from wood and offers an excellent opportunity to further your woodturning skills, it’s also very good at making you think about how you are going to actually be able to make this item, bear in mind it’s being made from one piece of wood.

Here are a couple of pictures of Tricylinders .

Here are a set of 3 Tricylinders that Nick had made.
Another example of a Tricylinder.

In addition to demonstrating how a Tricylinder is made, Nick is also going to take you through some of the information he received during the lock down with the “Tips” programme he introduced. This was where our members were asked to put forward any useful tips they felt may have been beneficial or at least interesting to the rest of our members. Nick was very pleased with the overall response he received during the lock down.
