Daventry Woodworks – 11th May 2017

The usual excellent show was laid on by Tudor Rose Woodturners, with a good turnout by local clubs vying for  the various awards on offer, and catching up with their friends.

West Northants Club Stand – Setting Up

There was plenty for visitors to do: learn from the demonstrators plying their craft, or watch the club turners sweating over their competition pieces. Alternatively, a mooch around the club stands and the professional’s stands was a pleasant change from all the activity, with plenty of beautifully turned display pieces to provide inspiration.

And, if that were not enough, there was no shortage of opportunity to hand over cash at the trade stalls and go home with a load of swag!
