Report on our meeting 29-09-2022, Finishing part 2.
Our latest meeting was on Thursday 29th September 2022, it was Finishing part 2, a follow on from a meeting we held in July with Finishing part 1. This meeting was managed by Nick Simpson where he showed and explained some of his alternative finishes, taking things away from what would be considered normal finishes.
Some of the subjects Nick covered were the use of spirit stains, antiquing some items including fuming to make them look old, he also included distressing an item again to make it look old, using the grain patterns to best advantage including scorching and sand blasting and the use of dyes on the scorched wood, he also talked about faux rust effect and how it was achieved, he showed some items that had copper wire included for embellishment and also how to make it look like copper wire was included.
I was due to have a small part of this meeting to talk and demonstrate the use of Pebeo paints on any woodturning, however Nick had more than enough content to fill the whole meeting that it was decided at the last minute that my presentation would be carried forward to a future meeting.
I was able to get a few pictures of Nick’s presentation and here are they, you will see they are somewhat different to the usual finishes we woodturners normally do, but what it also shows you that nearly anything in woodturning is possible, all you need is the idea and the innovation to make it happen. Pictures now,
That concluded Nick’s presentation, a short question and answer session followed with Nick answering all the members questions, he was then given a well deserved round of applause by the members.
Our next meeting is on the 13th October and it’s a showtime meeting again, I will be doing the compere and we are looking for you to bring lots of your turnings to be shown and talked about.
