Report on our meeting 01-09-2022 managed by David Hobson.
Our latest meeting was held on Thursday 1st September 2022, it was managed by David Hobson and David’s theme for the meeting was making wooden fruits. He had all 5 lathes working and all making some kind of wooden fruit, those demonstrating were David Hobson, David Ross, John Ruickbie, Dave Line and brought in at the last minute Liam Comfort who replaced his dad who was otherwise engaged.
Liam had a guardian with him as he is under 18 years and was supervised by me and his guardian, Liam was to make an Apple from a piece of Apple wood, David Ross made a Pear from a piece of Elm, David Hobson made a Pear from a piece of Laburnum, John Ruickbie made a Rotten Apple from a piece of Fruitwood and Dave Line made a Pear and an Apple from pieces of Beech wood.
The evening went very well, the members were very attentive to those turning and seemed to be taking it all in, a good rotation by those observing to see what everyone was doing. I got a few pictures at the meeting just to give you a feeling for what was happening.
That concludes the meeting on wooden fruit making, we do hope you enjoyed it and possibly learnt something from the demonstrators, the demonstrators were thanked for their participation and received a round of applause for their efforts.
The next meeting is on the 15th September, it will be managed by Errol Levings, Errol is going to make wooden goblets, this will be a solo event by Errol and everyone will be seated, a good turnout is always looked for.
