15th May External Demo – Robert Till

Turned Candlestick with Inside Out Centrepiece

Tonight the club welcomed accomplished turner and demonstrator Robert Till to Droitwich. His chosen project was a turned candlestick incorporating an inside out element as it’s centrepiece. He began by showing us how to glue 2 pieces of shop – bought pine together and mark up his intended design.

Having executed his design using a spindle gouge he parted the 2 pieces – reversed them and then re – glued.

Using a series of beads and coves Robert completed his spindle before separately turning a base for the candlestick.

Thanks to Robert for a very clear and concise demonstration.
