Another action packed session! Some really great pieces of work on show and some interesting discussions to go along with them, and not just about woodturning!
Read on for more details:
In terms of an update about the IRD for our group by Nick Agar: the man in question is sorting out diary dates (he's a busy chap) and is going to give us a date soon! As soon as we have details of the date/time we will let you know!
Graham Brooks sent in some photos of work inspired by recent demonstrations. The teapot and droplet inspired, of course, by our recent demonstrator Laurent Niclot was first. Graham followed this with two more items: first, a blues bowl in Walnut which is the outcome of Andrew Hall's recent blues bowl sessions. Second, a Trumkreisel inspired by Gary Lowe's recent demo. Now Graham has to learn to play the Blues Bowl....looking forward to the first concert!
Len Shield has been out into the workshop again and this time Len has produced a splendid "bowl in a bowl" piece.
Helen Bailey sent over some photos of her outdoor construction project. As we all know Helen likes to keep her workspace reasonably well organised and tidy! This is Helens solution for storage of wet and dry timber..please note - separate areas for both. The label maker has not been out yet ......but it's only a matter of time really!!
John Brown sent over some photos of a bowl made from some pieces of Yew branch wood that he had been given by another Turning North stalwart Brian Conchie. The branch wood had been machined then glued up to make a blank then turned into a rather nice bowl.
Kevin Purdy sent over some photos of a couple of pieces made from burrs. The pieces show off the burr but also feature some carving done by Kevin. The photos also included a set of cufflinks and a ring.
Patrick Lindsay sent over some photos of some woodturing tools he had made to help out on some of the larger projects he works on, including a captive hollowing rest and a curved rest for turning bowls.
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!!
