So we have finally arrived in 2016. All safe and sound, I hope.
I have now taken on more duties in both of my woodturning clubs. At the West Midlands Woodturners I have become deputy editor of the newsletter and the website, and at the Black Country Woodturners I am now the website administrator, with the job to generate and publish and completely brand new site. It’s work in progress, and I’ll keep you all updated as we go along.
Even more important to me: I have won the overall trophy for the intermediate class at the West Midlands Woodturners, and have been promoted to the advanced class. Now the challenge is on. There are some pretty good turners there, and it will be a lot harder to win any given month. The subject for January is a square edge bowl. I have mine ready for the competition next Sunday, but I won’t post any pictures just yet, so that nobody will be able to recognize my piece (and thereby put any kind of prejudice on the judging).
Bring it on!
