DWT Annual Seminar

Scheduled for May 6th and will feature the top-class Irish woodturner Robert O’Connor.

A Journey into the Nature of Bog Oak.

The March Saturday Meeting described a lesson in patience. Eamonn Heffernan explained the process that oak and other woods went through having been discovered in bogs, and subsequently made into works of art.

Having dug up and cleaned up bog oak, for example, it can take another four years before a piece can be fashioned into the final article. Still, it’s worth the wait. A typical piece of bog oak could be several thousand years old, and although its not capable of being turned, in the hands of a  master,  a thing of create beauty can be produced which has an almost sacred quality, given its age. More pictures are on the Meetings page and a detailed description is available in the April Newsletter.
