|Thread: Has any one turned any wall art.|
Hi Les, we had the pleasure of proffesinal wood turner George Foweraker do a demo at our club this year and his forte is wall art and he exsplained the dangers of not being able to reach the on off switch, and what he did was plug the lathe into a exstention lead and had the socket down by his feet. he also paints and scorches his work take a look at his web site he got a good blog. www.artistry-in-wood.co.uk hope this helps
|thankyou Bill your a star|
Hi Bill, just looked at your lathe steady thats just what im looking to make thanks
Thanks for the reply's, Eric i will have a go with what you suggested as im only looking to turn 15'' at longest.
Our next challenge for our next club comp is to turn long and thin, Can anyone point me in the right direction to some plans on how to make a steady.

Like yew Sam I enjoy making clock's the choice of wood is first class all the best for the comp update us on how you get on. Dennis you always amaze me with your segment work their is one of the lads from the club that is into segment work and iv'e been to see him at work and amazed at the amount of work involved credit to you. The same applies in our club of only one catergory which im not a fan of as how can the novice's compete with fella's that been into it for years is beyond me but hey that's the rules.
