    Demo

    Hi all.....i was asked to do a demonstration today on Pen turning for my group of the Institute of Carpenters....please bring a lathe!!
    Well i did....i think it went OK with some good feedback....
    I went through the various stages with blank and kit selection..drilling and glueing...trimming and turning....bushes...finishes.....obscure things...and even had a play with these two.....to show different finishes the olive one is Melamine and the Ash is CA.....these are two one piece slimline kits, spin offs from my arrow pens and something else i wanted to try20180217_175707.jpg

    I only open my mouth...to change feet...

    Thanks for sharing my brother in law came from Durham late 40,s early 50,s Ex Army WW2 was a Painter always talked endlessly of a City of, or and ,Guilds qualification as a Painter and Decorator in the UK. I listened in awe at the required skill levels needed to obtain this,it included Coach decorative Scrolling etc. sounded very exotic.
