Our next virtual meeting 26-11-2020, Lamp bases.

Our next meeting should be held on Thursday 26th November 2020, but due to the Covid-19 restrictions still in place this meeting will now be held virtually. The meeting was to be arranged by Cliff Sim and Cliff’s theme for the meeting was making lamp bases, any type of lamp can be made it’s your choice. Remember there are other types of lamps that can be made and from lots of different sources even recycling from something else.

I will give you a couple of examples on what I mean from recycling,

This lamp and small bowl were made from 2 bowling balls that I recycled, I will give you the full procedure for this lamp base in the next post after I have received your entries.
This lamp too was made from a recycled table leg, only the base plate was new and had to be stained to match the original part of the table leg. I had 4 of these, all were made into lamps the rest of the table was made into various other items mainly on the lathe.

You are all invited to take part in Cliff’s lamp bases, don’t let him down by not entering, we want to see a very good entry from as many of you as possible.

Don’t worry about making just the base without all the electrical bit and bobs, it’s your idea for the base we want to see, we all know what the other bits look like.

Get your entries to me by the end of the day on Friday 27th November and I will post them on our web site, we need a good response.
