Egg-Cup Challenge

A fair turnout of members was entertained by attempts to turn an egg-cup in the time it takes to boil an egg – about 3 minutes 10 seconds. Cylinders of ash, kindly provided by Geoffrey Vicars, chuck-mounted on the lathe were the starting point for the nine members who tried to beat the clock, and each other, to produce a handsome, functional piece of kitchenware. It clearly is possible although finishing in most cases left something to be desired. The assembled membership performed the judging identifying Dave Willcocks, who had clearly been practising and Alan Stewart as winner and runner-up. The evening appeared to have been enjoyed by all. Any suggestions for next year’s club challenge?!

The July Club Night is on Tuesday 28th July and is a demonstration by the Irish turner, Joe Laird.  Click here to see his website.

The guided walk in August has had to be postponed and so the next event will be Margaret Garrard on 3rd September.  For more information click here.
