Next Meeting 1st April

This is a night hosted by one of our bevy of club demonstrators Keith Drew.

Its all about the manufacture, use and application of specialist turning tools.

The items they are used to manufacture & their presentation to the work.

Keith is a hobby turner, but will show what we can all aspire to and accomplish in our turning journey.

So come along, I am sure you will get some inspiration from the knowledge gained by Keith over many years.


A chat with our club members could be very beneficial when deciding on what purchases to make on beginning the craft.

Meeting 18th March.

This was another well attended  project and Gallery night, members where tasked to produce a segmented item with a minimum of 4 pieces of wood. The range of work being shown and discussion about its manufacture was very impressive, allowing all members to get some ideas for future projects.

Comment by K Manvell.

A big hats off to Roy Hadland who turned an unremarkable piece of wood into a lovely shaped pepper-grinder, minus the innards as time did not permit, though we were all shown the rudiments of installing the said mechanism!
