Demo by Kenny


Club meeting - May 23



Competition (Beg.) - Finger ring on


Kenny stood in for the speaker from Hexham Hardwoods who was taken ill.  The Barleycorn Twist is something of a favourite with Kenny and he produces a full candlestick stem in a little over 40 minutes (something I seem to remember took me about nine hours in the class).  Kenny explained about how to produce the open twists and also demonstrated how to mark out the wood to begin the process.  The beginners competition was won by Paul Burton with his multiple ring, ring stand and wooden finger ring.  To see all the entries click here.
