Pheasant Chicks Hatched by a Hen
I was working on this 15″ oak platter and was just tidying up the base when a moment’s lack of concentration caused the platter to fly off the lathe, hit the lathe bed and break in two. I was so annoyed I couldn’t even swear :- (
Got any Glue?
Last night was our monthly meeting and was one of our “Hands On” nights, these are nights when we get several lathes out and encourage everyone to have a go at turning something, big or small.
Last night was a bit different in that we spent a lot of the night planning our entry for the Guild “Chapter Challenge” which this year is a Traction engine.
Won’t give too much away here, don’t want all those other chapters copying us
Spent a great morning on Saturday at the East Central Chapter Seminar, demonstrators were Tony Rea & John Malone,
Unfortunately we were unable to stay for John’s demo but we had a very informative demo from Tony on how to turn and finish a natural edges bowl.
A full report will appear on our website and you can also check out the regular meeting reports of the East Central Chapter here,
