This Monday we had a number of items shared amongst the group and Stephen Mellor gave us a great break down of some of home made jigs he has, here are the details:
Graham Brooks gave us all a look at some emerging bowls he had been making. The emerging bowls had been made in two different orientations, the first was the more standard approach with a cross grain bowl emerging from a log but the second was an end grain bowl emerging from the log. Very nice and quite a technical challenge!
Kevin Purdy gave us look at some platters he had been making one of them featured some pyrography. Those of us from the North East will recognise the image Kevin has created as Sycamore Gap, it's a pretty well known landmark on the Roman Wall. Very nice indeed!
Pat Carroll sent over a photo of a completed piece with an indented edge, applied metal cogs and gears with a variety of finishes applied. The gears and cogs were applied using Powertex.
Richard Dickson sent over some photos of a gift he had made. The two rings were made for a relative because the jewellers were closed and an engagement ring could not be gotten hold of. So Richard made these to stand in on a temporary basis...personally I think these are way better than anything you could buy...just saying!!
Stephen Mellor sent over some photos of a selection of the jigs he has made for his workshop, including hollowing jigs, sphere jigs and a range of other items. We all know where to get things made now...form an orderly queue folks!!
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!!
DON'T FORGET: YOU SHOULD SEND OVER YOUR PHOTOS FOR MONDAY EVENING RIGHT AWAY FOLKS!!
