This Monday we had a number of items shared amongst the group along with a very lively discussion about bullets, cartridge sizes and whole range of other stuff!! As usual here is the run down:
Martin Stacey gave us a look at a couple of items he has made following on from some remote demonstrations he had seen. The first is a bowl with colour and a gloss finish, the second is a lidded box with carved texture. Thank you Martin!
Patrick Lindsay showed us a "little and large" combination. A large Yew hollow form and a miniature set of goblets and a flask made from Purpleheart. The miniature set was based on a full size set which Patrick also shared with us. All pieces were made on the VB36 and I believe Patrick mentioned he used the Kelton hollowing tools to make the hollow form.
Phil Irons sent over a set of photographs showing some inclusions he had come across recently in a tree he was cutting up for blanks. It looks like someone had been using this tree for target practice! Phil managed to retrieve some of the rounds almost intact. Whoever was shooting was either really lucky or really good because they had managed to hit the same spot exactly with the second bullet pushing the first one further in. We had a very healthy discussion as to the type of weapon that had been used and the approximate age of the rounds!!
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!!
