July Saturday Demo

Noel Fay was our July demonstrator. He told us about different finishes and showed us how to colour the grain in our projects.

Dublin Chapter Picnic. The first chapter picnic was held at John Doran's house in Blessington. About 25 members and family were there to see three demonstrations. The first was Willie Edwards who showed us how to tune and use a band saw. He showed us how to cut bowl blanks and how to make jigs for cutting different shaped wood.

After that we had a demo of a "pole lathe". A bunch of us had a go at it (including me). I found it a lot easier than I thought it would be. I tried a roughing out gouge and a skew. With the low speed, you didn't have to worry so much about a catch.

After the pole lathe, we had chicken, burgers and sausages expertly bar-b-cued by our good friend Stephen Coffee and his friend (Sorry but I can't remember his name).

The last demo of the day was done by me (Bob Finley) and was on how to make pens. I showed how to drill odd shaped holes in the blanks and then fill them with super-glue and other material to make different effects.

All in all it was a great day and I am looking forward to the next picnic. More pictures will be coming soon.
