Thin Bowl Turning Demonstration given by David Woodward
 
The Wight Woodturners meeting held in the Scout Hall on Thursday 27th June, started, as is our custom, by Chairman Mike opening with a warm welcome and bringing members up to date with various news items about the running of the Club, and the programme for the evening.
 
The evening started with our regular Show-and-Tell where members exchange turning experience, info on jigs and tools or just interesting news. 
 
The main event for the night was a demonstration given by David Wooward on turning thin bowls. A Slideshow is shown later in this page.
 
A few pictures below give a flavour of the evening.
