A Spanish Seminar!

The editor visited a woodturning seminar in the charming Spanish village of Vilafames where he witnessed the most exquisitely delicate woodturning of Jean Francois Escoulen who produced his signature “Trembler” (see picture). Also a Spanish woodturner who electrocuted a platter! More in the May issue of the Newsletter.

DWT Annual Seminar

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

Christy Glynn shapes a few legs.

The April Saturday Meeting saw the irrepressible Christy Glynn share his skills once again. He showed how to spin (turn) a pedestal leg and also how to carve some Queen Anne legs (how Queen Anne gets around on them is amazing).

There were stories aplenty, wisdom in abundance, and his skills, accumulated over a working lifetime, obvious.

More pictures are on the Meetings page and a detailed description is available in the May Newsletter.

Roger Bennet confirmed for the June Saturday Demo.

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

– Aidan Dunne, The Irish Times. His work can be seen at www.rogerbennettwoodturner.com
