Craft Fair News


I am very sorry to announce that due to ongoing ill health Isaac cannot organise and run the botanic Gardens Craft fair, all dates are cancelled.  Isaac had a procedure on his spine early in February and has just been discharged from hospital with ongoing heart decease problems (29 February 2016).  Isaac and myself are truly sad that this has had to be cancelled.














Woodturning Projects


This book is a Guild Of Master Craftsmen Publication


Written by Mark Baker and is listed for £16.95 (code 1799) I purchased the book through Amazon for £10.51 including delivery, checked in Jan 2010 and now for as little as £6.29 second hand.


It is well laid out with what seems the obligatory section in the front on Tools, Safety, Finishing and woods, however it is short.


The book then breaks down into Boxes (10), Bowls (10), Platters (10), Hollow Forms (10), Natural Edge Work (10) and finishes with a couple of small galleries.


Each item is described and often the techniques used, plus hints and tips, I am still glancing at this book 2 years on when I am looking for inspiration for a shape.


I found this an informative book for beginner and intermediate alike, and the price I purchased it at makes it a good addition to my library, I shall be lending it out to the guys in the workshop
