Monday 16th August External demo in our normal meeting room, restricted to 24 members due to school covid rules.

The nights audience

Tony Jones was the external demonstrator from the local Bescot wood turning club he also teaches wood turning.

He demonstrated one of his signature pieces a thin walled Vortex Bowl

Tony demonstrated the safe use of the lathe, correct presentation of the turning tools and a way to restrict sanding dust using a paste wax whilst applying abrasives.

The reasons for choosing the holding mechanism & his method of producing a 1.5 mm thick walled vessel.

In all an enjoyable evening for all present, some new knowledge gained by most members

who showed their appreciation to Tony at the end.
