Phillip Greenwood Demo and Competition Results – 30 Oct 18
PHILLIP GREENWOOD DEMO
We had another almost full house this month which is great to see and a few new faces. We welcomed back Phillip Greenwood from Hutton-le-Hole which is on the edge of North York Moors National Park who last demonstrated for us back in Oct 2013. He started his demo with a three piece earring stand and showed how you don’t need an expensive lathe with an indexing system to get the holes evenly spaced. He showed us his simple wooden disc with the holes marked on which goes between the chuck and the headstock. Then with metal rod with a 90 degree angle in the end and a piece of wood clamped to the bed bars you can easily lock the headstock in the right place. Additionally he showed another homemade jig that allows the drilling of the holes to be perfectly placed.
Next was a simple little ring stand to complement the earring stand. He ended the evening with a natural edge bowl.
