Sunday October 23rd

All day Demo by Jason Breach

On Sunday the club welcomed Jason Breach for an all-day session where he demonstrated a number of his signature pieces.

First of all he showed how to make some relatively simple pieces – a mushroom an apple and a pear.

Another of Jason’s signature projects is the solitaire game which requires identically sized spheres of different woods. Turning between centres he used a modified hole saw to achieve this.

He then made a larger sphere & incorporated a clock mechanism.

He then made a Sphericon Box using more specialist jamb chucks.

Having made a spherical box Jason made another special jamb chuck to complete the Sphericon shape. Its feature is that the 2 halves can rotate 90 degrees and still have matching surfaces. (Needs accurate turning)

Jasons final item the “Pagoda” Box

Jason’s demo lasted from 10.00am to 4.00 pm with plenty of discussion about the use of jamb chucks. tools used and their presentation to the work pieces, finishing his pieces and finishes he prefers.

In all a very interesting and informative demonstration, well received by our members and some invited from other clubs, Jason was thanked in the usual way.
