Les Thorne - professional turner
Stewart turns a spigot on the front of his platters, and a recess on the rear enabling him to re-turn either face as necessary if the technique he is trying doesn't work to his satisfaction.
Once mounted he often carves texture in with his Proxxon
Fortunately all the splatter was contained in Stewart's custom splatter catcher - proving that not all wood turning tools need be expensive
This month we held a Club Draw with prizes to fund anything associated with woodturning. The winner of the first prize of £200 was Steve James with Bob Brading being drawn Second receiving £100 and Gordon Eaton third with £50 - congratulation to all
The trick is starting with an exact cube and alugning it between the points so that you can create a chucking spigot
Then you can hold it to turn it into a delightful little bowl, and finally create a small foot
