Fairlop Woodturners November Challenge – anything decorated Monday 28th
As usual we had three classes of entry – the winner of the beginners class was Graham Pook – his Mahogany (I think) dish was inlaid with epoxy putty
The Intermeadiate class was won by John Houghton – this was his first attempt at colouring using Jesso first and them wood stain.
This Ash dish was pyrographed and treated with liming wax.
Not sure what the wood was but this bowl was burnt and stained
The top class was won by John Brotherton with this amazing piece of carved, painted, routed and air brushed vase.
This Tulip wood plate was pyrographed.
This wet turned end grain Ash chalice was carved with a small micro-plane. The stem was bored out and the pith superglued to prevent splitting.
Not a huge turnout but a successful evening and once again a good range of entries and techniques. The weekly meeting are to continue through December.
