Club Meeting and Demonstration – April 30-2022

Apologies – this article was written back in April, but someone forgot to press the ‘publish’ button!

Roy Ellery gives away his secrets!

The CVWA General Meeting of 30-April, 2022 was followed by a demonstration by President Roy Ellery. Roy brought in the range of tools he uses to carve and texture his turned and sculpted pieces. Roy’s demo generated a lot of interest, with questions from the floor. Some of Roy’s tools have a reverse switch option, apparently, that feature can be used to correct mistakes…

As usual, the meeting featured the traditional Show and Tell section, with numerous items and plenty of discussion.

Bob Northam – Money Box
Steve Dodd – Medal box
Roy Ellery – Turned, textured and painted bowl
Alan Bishop – Un-square box with glass bird
Jim Morison – Burl table
Bob Northam – Olive wood bowl
Jim Morison – Mystery log – best guesses included Crepe Myrtle and Mulberry
Alan Bishop – Dragon Fly box – Coastal Cypress and Mango
Roy Ellery – turned and sculpted form.

The meeting concluded with a sausage sizzle and good conversation – thanks to Colin Lang.
