Wednesday 18th July at Fairlop Woodturners in Dagenham.

This was the first proper hands on meeting since our move. We now have six working lathes (one next door). The pillar drill and stand is the next bit of kit to complete.


We have four lathes down one side, with a Graduate on the other.

John Houghton was probably the first member to make something in the new workshop!

I think this was from magnolia.

Graham Pook a close second with this oak whistle.


The allotmenteers (we share their facilities) are a friendly bunch. I opened the security gates to let one out and this was his tip!

What a well-attended restart to our group. Many thanks go to John Brotherton our chairman who put so much work into the workshop build.

Our thanks also to the Worshipful Company of turners and the AWGB who contributed to our moving and workshop building expenses.
