They say that the only thing that flat-earthers have to fear is sphere itself. But, for the July demo we were in safe hands, and Pat Walsh set out to show us how to make a sphere. Using a method from John Malone, the well-known Donegal turner and a few every-day tools, Pat began by mounting a chunk of beech that comprised two pieces glued together. They had been suitably planed flat and glued together with Titebond Original. The 7 x 7 inch block was mounted between Steb-centres by its end grain.
