Unfortunately the designated demonstrator for the evening was unavailable so we had to revert to plan “B” which was to press gang Roger Gilbert and Gerald Hubbard to provide the entertainment. Needless to say we were not disappointed even though both struggled with using tools that were not their own.
Roger took first dibs and before the tea interval he created a winged bowl which gave most of us at least one useful tip.
After tea Gerald produced a small box and again he also provided a number of tips that will prove useful for most of us.
The Facebook page for West Northants Woodturners seems to be drawing a fair amount of interest and we have had an increase in the membership which is encouraging. Also from this page we have received an option of some wood turning equipment. More details are on the for sale page.
