For the

Autumn Open Competition

 

October 2017

 

 

The Wight Woodturners fourth and final Competition of the year was an Open Competition where members could unleash their imagination and turn whatever inspired them.  Once again our members’ originality and craftsmanship can be seen below.  With such a high degree of skill and much creativity it does make the judging an interesting process.  The Club doesn’t have a resident judge, but all the members cast their votes for the three winners in each of the three Classes.  These are then totted up by our Competition-Master, Roy.  A running total of the scores are kept over the year and each Class winner receives a trophy at the AGM in December.  All the results may be found via the links in the left hand column on the home page of the Wight Woodturners website.  Thanks to Roy for his gallant efforts in running our competitions.  If you are a member and haven’t entered a competition before, or perhaps recently, do try your hand in 2018.  Competition pieces are a great way of trying techniques you haven’t attempted before.  Good luck in 2018!
