DEMONSTRATIONS

IN-PERSON GREEN WOODWORKING & ELECTRIC LATHE WOODTURNING DEMONSTRATIONS

Demonstrations can include a range of projects or tailored to suit the needs of the club/association.


My demonstration shows you how to achieve the project using standard woodturning tools.


I always offer the option for members to have my detailed project notes emailed to them after the session.


On principle, I don't sand. Apart from it being incredibly boring to watch, it's also not particularly great to breathe in!

I always give the demonstrated piece to the club/association.

ECCENTRIC MACHINE LATHE

DEMONSTRATION

AT THE

DISS WOODTURNERS CLUB

November 2023

Thank you to Chris Davies from the Diss Woodturning Club for inviting me to demonstrate eccentric (off-centred) turning at their meeting place in Redgrave.

Louise and I received a very warm welcome and it was great to meet the members in Chris' cosy workshop.

I demonstrated how to turn an eccentric candlestick with base, and members were invited to provide their email addresses if they wanted me to send them my detailed project notes.

I like to share my ideas and projects so that others can learn from them and be inspired to create their own designs.

The Diss Woodturning Club meets on the last Friday of every month. 

GREEN WOODWORKING INTERACTIVE DEMONSTRATION

AT THE

ELY GUILD OF WOODTURNERS

October 2023

It was nice to be asked by my local woodturning club, the Ely Guild of Woodturners, to demonstrate green woodworking to the members.

The members of most woodturning clubs and groups are usually made up of machine lathe turners with very few ever dabbling with pole lathes and green woodworking, so it was great to introduce them to the wonders and joys of green woodwork.

I demonstrated how to take a log of green wood with its bark on and use an axe to rough it down ready for the next stage where the log is taken to the shave horse and a draw knife is used to further shape the log into a round in readiness for the pole lathe.

The pole lathe is often the star of the show, and I encouraged members of the group to come and have a go at turning the log using their own leg power on the pole lathe - slightly different to using a machine lathe, but ultimately satisfying.

It was a good evening.
