Club Night – 17th July 2019

This was a much anticipated demonstration by Emma Cook who proposed to make a LED lit Christmas tree decoration. The several examples that she had on show certainly whetted our appetite for this demonstration. The project consisted of a glass bauble and a string of very small LED lights with finely turned finials. To try to describe everything that Emma demonstrated is not an option, as she covered most of what is involved with spindle turning of finials. There were tips and tricks coming almost continuously with Emma’s running commentary. Needless to say everyone learned something from the night or were reminded of something that they had forgotten. This was an excellent demonstration and all of the attendees appreciated the expertise on show.
