Back to the grind stone :-)
The first demo back after my trip was at North Cornwall Woodturning Club. Around two and a half hours away but worth the drive as I love the countryside and views in and around the erea.
The club is small in size but not in character and quality of equipment.
The day started with the turning of a small sculpture, followed by a wide rim carved and scorched bowl.
Then after lunch it was an offset hole lidded form/pot with carved finial, followed by a hollow form turned through the base and finally as an infill to finish the day off a small paper weight/ornament out of olive ash.
I stopped sanding in my demo's some time ago and like to concentrate on the processes of making various items.
The members seemed to enjoy the day as did I. But it would appear that it takes a little longer for me these days to get over jet lag hence the reason I look much like a red faced zombie in the last picture.
Thank you to Roger for taking the pictures, and all for an enjoyable day.
Then it has been teaching students bowl turning, a day off tomorrow to play around with a new design and then more tuition for the rest of the week.
