First of all let's wish everyone a happy new year, it's hopefully going to be a bit better than last year! We had a good turn out for the first meeting of the year and lots of work on display, even some Christmas items that just about scraped in under the twelfth night rule!! So here is a round up
Bill Mooney kicked off the year with a collection of clocks he had made over a period of time. The clocks are in a variety of styles and from a whole range of timbers, some of the clocks feature a paint finish and pyrography.
David Gordon sent over some photos of a carousel he has been making for a child, lots of colour/paint. A lovely gift!
Kevin McAlister is working through his wood stash, I think mostly because if he doesn't then Cameron will have it all !! This piece was from a blank labelled Burr Ash...and very nice too. However for the second week in a row.....no sticky stuff.....Powertex will be going out of business at this rate !!
Margaret Garrard managed to get the additional photos over and twelfth night or not everyone was very happy to see the selection of tree decorations and of course the tree itself.
Phil Irons has been playing with more of the Eucalyptus and produced a form based on those produced by Melvyn Firmager, I think Melvyn refers to them as a "Sea Rose"...the natural tendency of the Eucalyptus to move when drying is particularly useful here. The form was left to dry and then coloured. Phil also showed us a Lego bus he had been making....so that's Phil been colouring in and playing with Lego then, nice !!
As always we had several contributions from others but the session is not recorded so I don't have screen shots....if you showed something then please do send over some photos, you can do it from your mobile phone.... it's not that hard, just ask a teenager for help!!
