DWT Annual Seminar 2017 - Demo.
At our May meeting this year we were given an outstanding display of skill at the lathe by Robert O’Connor, who is based in Gorey, Co. Wexford. He made several of his signature pieces during the day, including two beaded bowls, an occasional table, and a nice lidded sugar bowl.
A master of all he produces, his unique talent is making continuous beads. He showed us how to put nine beads, of increasing size on the outside of a bowl, in one pass. Pretty scary stuff for those of us who do them one by one!
More pictures are on the Meetings page and a detailed description is available in the June Newsletter.

The organisation of a demonstrator, the general planning and getting sponsors (thanks committee); running of proceedings on the day (thanks Joe) and getting the Woodshed to look after our woodturning pocket money; the catering (thanks ladies); and set up and clearing up after (thanks all).

"Roger Bennett's woodturned bowls ... are stunning, beautifully made sculptural objects."
