This month Mark Hancock came to demonstrate what he termed a 'rocking vessel' What this actually means is a hollow form, with no flat base. So rather than standing up in a conventional way, they roll around, or 'rock' to a natural resting point.
This months demonstration was by professional turner David Springett. He is author of a bunch of books about wood turning. And he also brought a long a lot of examples of his work.
It's amazing just how good I feel about being given this cup. I've been going to the club for a little under a year now. Which means I've been wood turning seriously for about a year also. It's nice to find I'm not the only one who thinks I've improved.
Whilst it may seem a little late, due to the snow the February wood turning meeting got canceled and I got more time to complete the challenge set by Bill to make a wine bottle coaster.
A new year and already we've had the first good woodturning demonstration. This month Adrian Smith gave the demo on off-centre turning. There are a few signs which indicate someone takes woodturning seriously, one such sign was present on Adrian Smith... his own work smock with his name stitched on breast.
