This week we have an assortment of news and updates to help keep you going and up to date throughout this period.
Turning North Zoom Meeting
September 14th 2020
Great to see some new faces (though they are in fact old friends) amongst the regulars at our Monday evening Zoom session.
We had contributions from a number of regulars and some of our "new" faces and some of you have even volunteered to help out at upcoming sessions...though you may not have realised it of course!
We had a great view of the Fluting jig that Ian Forster has made, and work on display from a number of folks including Kevin Purdy, Kevin McAlister, Bill Mooney and a whole range of others...we even let Phil Irons show some of his work, he's not bad for a new turner!!
One question that has come back is about the glitter infill/inlay material that Phil Irons had shown us, several of you have asked where to get hold of it.
The material is available on Amazon(and what isn't these days).
and, it is even available in "Barney" pink ...just for Pat!!
The other idea from the session was to help those of you wanting to participate, just send me back your images and then I will show them on screen during the meeting and all you then have to do is to tell folks what they are looking at....what could be simpler!!
So if you haven't tried Zoom yet and fancy a night out with your woodturning mates then come along on Monday (7pm), it's easy!
If you know of any sessions we need to add to the calendar then please do let us know by email, just click reply on your email.
Woodturners Worldwide Symposium
You still have plenty of time to sign up for what promises to be a great event, over 40 demonstrations by turners from all round the world. You can watch all manner of turning, catch up with friends and who knows you might even make a few new ones!
All of the sessions are available to watch as recordings after the event for a limited period so you don't need to worry about missing one.
If you sign up you can get a $10 discount by using the name of one of the demonstrators at the checkout, so either Carroll, Hall or Irons would work...other turners are available!!
