DWT Annual Seminar
Scheduled for May 6th and will feature the top-class Irish woodturner Robert O’Connor.
Check Mate from John Killoran.
The January Saturday Meeting was a lively one, with impromptu discussions on several topics. But the main feature was a demo by John Killoran, who showed how to make a replica of the chess board that was the Chapter’s entry into the Chapter Challenge last year.
Choosing ash and rosewood veneer, he demonstrated how to accurately cut and assemble the squares and the boarder of the playing surface.
A finished board, that he brought along to show us, was testament to the skills acquired from his career as a furniture maker. More pictures are on the Meetings page and a detailed description is available in the February Newsletter.
