This Monday we had a number of items shared amongst the group and a follow up on our live workshop tour!!
Read on for more details:
We, or in this case Pat, are waiting on news about the IRD for our group by Nick Agar: we took a poll to see if members of the group were interested (like we needed to ask) and the response was an overwhelming yes with the most requested topic being the Viking Sunset Bowl.
As soon as we have details of the date/time we will let you know!
Allan Joicey showed us a very unusual hollow vessel he had made from a piece of Hawthorn root. The blank had an inclusion which would have detached itself altogether during the turning process, so Allan made some modifications and applied a little of his thread chasing know-how to create this one of a kind hollow form with a detachable section!
Len Shield has been making some emerging bowls in advance of the session by Theo Haralampou on Record Power Live. Len turned these two as a pair, using a paper joint between the two blanks to turn the outside shape, splitting them apart and then re-mounting to finish the inside of the bowls.
Martin Stacey sent over some photos of his workshop build, replacing two sheds with one combined workshop and storage. Some really great use of space and very clever storage ideas on display from Martin!
As always we had several contributions from others so, 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!!

Once again thanks to all of you for making these evenings such a success, if nobody contributed then none of these evenings could happen. Keep on making and, most important of all, keep on sharing!
