Club Night – 21st February 2018

Hands-On & Other Activities

Today was a hands-on session, with some personal projects being progressed, and with tuition being given to new member Glyn, and guests Scott and William – it was nice to see them at the meeting and getting stuck in. I was mostly doing other things (see below) but, amongst other things, I saw a nice goblet in the making.

Elsewhere in the hall, there was eager anticipation as our new Coronet Herald lathe was unpacked and set up on its stand ready for use at the next meeting on March 7th. It looks like it’ll be a nice little lathe, compact and easily moved around for demos and Hands-On alike.

Other members were busy prepping our club stand for Daventry Woodworks in May, moving some materials out of storage, and generally tidying up. One of our DML-36 lathes was also dismantled and taken away, soon to be sold.

All too soon it was time to sweep up, tidy up and lock up after a busy but productive  meeting.

Until next time, safe turning….

Club Night – 4th October 2017


This was a hands-on session with a number of people beavering away at various projects, but no pictures I’m afraid as I was busy being shown how to get a good finish on a large lump of awful, nameless, Welsh pine. Thanks Mick!


This month’s competition had an unusual diversity of styles with, amongst other things, a lovely little table complete with mouse and candlesticks, a beautiful lignum vitae vase and a very nice inlaid platter.
