Tom Murphy Resinates with us all!
For the February demo Tom Murphy gave us some insight into using resin when woodturning. After plenty of detail about the mixture and making of resin, he turned a small vase that had had a crack filled with resin. Here are some pictures with more on the Meetings Page for February.
The Saturday and Wednesday meetings for April went ahead despite the grey sky. Kristian Doherty gave a demo of the MDF Rose Engine lathe, an unique device for making ornamental turned (OT) objects. An unusual machine that made decoratively patterned objects by moving the head-stock when turning. The Wednesday demo saw Colm Murphy show us his techniques for turning natural-edged bowls. For more information and photos, see the Meetings page and the Newsletter. A photo of each demo is shown below.
