Well it looks like one of our number has actually lost control of his workspace, so we can look forward to some photos of a workshop build ....

Cameron McAlister: Woodturning

Cameron McAlister has actually now taken over at McAlister towers, Kevin has been kicked out of the workshop ....again. Cameron has been in production with a pot pourri holder and this rather splendid Cosmic Clouds piece....Gary Lowe watch out!!

 

Ken Bryden: WoodturningKen Bryden wtook inspiration from a recent demo by Pat Carroll to produce a set of these square boxes. All based on the project done by Pat but all showing slightly different shapes or styles as Ken worked through perfecting the shape....they all look pretty perfect to me!

 

Nick Simpson: WoodturningNick Simpson showed us some of his work from his "fence post" collection, all from odds and ends of softwood. The timber is all reclaimed from other purposes and has been turned into these lovely pieces which have been sandblasted to enhance their texture.

 

Ray Midgley: WoodturningRay Midgley showed us a square box with a lid, again Pat Carroll's demo proving to be an inspiration to produce some very fine work.

 

 

Pat Carroll: WoodturningPat Carroll showed us the product of his recent IRD on how he creates a vase with a stunning paint effect using the Jo Sonja iridescent paints. Pat stressed that this is an unfinished piece...I only wish mine looked that good finished !!

   

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!!
