Spoon turning Demonstration by Roger Gladdish
Meeting in the Scout Hall on Thursday 24th July the Wight Woodturners continued with their regular evening programme. Sadly, we seem to have lost just one or two members with our change of venue but this evening we were pleased to offer a warm welcome to some of our new members and enquirers.
As customary, the evening started with our regular Show-and-Tell where members show off their most recent work and exchange information on turning jigs and tools or just interesting news.
The highlight of this evening was a practical turning demonstration by our Roger Gladdish on how to make wooden scoops and spoons. This was by way of an introduction to our August Competition where members are asked to enter a "Spoon, Knife and Fork". Well, during our evening meeting Roger showed us how to make the Spoon, so the Knife and the Fork are left to the member's imagination and ingenuity! I'm sure we won't be disappointed.
A few pictures below gives a flavour of our evening.

Many thanks to Roger for an entertaining and thought provoking evening.
