December Meeting

Decembers Winners

Notes of meeting 10th December 15

 

This month there were 19 members present.

 

Demonstration

This month being the xmas meeting members were invited to come and demonstrate some of their talents.

Bert Alexius started with a sanding stick for the inside of vases and other hollow forms. These can be tailored to match different shapes and are a safe way of working internals, also do not burn fingers!

Stuart then made a goblet but to do so, he had to demonstrate how to fix a faulty lathe.

Finally John B showed how to make a snow man and xmas tree.

 

This Month’s Competition

This month’s competition a Christmas decoration or present was won by Phil Smith with an excellent bowl, John C was second and John B third.

 

Next Competition

The next competition will be a Hollow Form.
