Wood Turning Displays-1 May 2017

Ok. the ballerina was constructed out of 6 pieces of timber plus wood shavings – when I locate the correct base primer I shall paint her.

The Chalice was used for the first  time at Holy Communion to night and doesn’t leak so I must make a Patton for it. The other two goblet like creations were constructed from a single piece of timber end on end so it wasn’t necessary to create  a second tennon to turn the second one over to complete it.

The rather peculiar object was fashioned from a log with split ends, just like a manikin but cracked and so I was unable to complete the hollowing out.

The candle holder was made some time ago and happened to serve as our candle holder for Liturgy tonight.

The Shed is located at the Kooloora Community centre in its own space, we have 5 Lathes, one adapted for wheelchair user. A band saw that loves fingers and other protuberances into its spaces.

Drill press, drilling machines, and an Aladdin’s cave full of other things galore, I love the Jacob’s Chuck, it is like a miniature tunnel borer with Various sized heads.
