Wednesday 14th January Andy Coates demonstrating at Fairlop Woodturners - King Solomon High School IG6 3HB

This was his second visit to our club, and was our first demonstration this year. Andy was demonstrating making his favourite hollow form – a rough onion shape lidded vessel. The quick bit is making the form, the time and effort is then invested in the decoration.

This was a completed box he brought with – Sycamore with pyro graphed elements is a bit of an understatement!

The underside was not forgotten

This was another sycamore box and lid – with a burr oak insert in the lid.
What a clever use of small scraps to really make a difference.

The moral of the story is not to throw away any small burr scrap.
