The club has bought some 3” x 3 “ timber. Walter has cut this up into 12” lengths. The holiday task is to make anything from the blank. You can only have a blank if you are going to do the task. The ‘show and tell’ for this will be on September 20th.
The Club will be closed for the Summer Break from Thursday 19th July (which will be our last week of the term). We will re-open on Thursday September 13th 2018 for the Autumn Term.
Please come along to our All Day Demo Day in the company of
Mark Sanger on Saturday 20th October. This should be a really
constructive and artistic day for everybody interested in woodturning

2017 Free Gallery and OZ Awards
Congratulations to Rob Williams, for taking the honours this year and to everyone who put pieces into the gallery. There were a very large number of entries this year and the standard was as usual extremely high. In previous years there have been comments passed by the judges that the only thing letting these items down was elements of the finishing, I am pleased to see that this critique has been taken into account and applied to the items on display. Special tribute has to be made to Rob as he also took second place with an inset platter and walked away with the Gordon Award for the years best improved turner. A big thank you to everyone for participating on the night and making it such an enjoyable event.
