Club night 16th January I gave you some insight as to what this year’s challenge would take the form of.

With the help of Iain Grant who put together a series of photographs that related to the title.

Some of these images were non wood and was intended to trigger less obvious designs and broaden the techniques for this and other wood turning projects. Research and thought can make a difference to the appeal of the final object.

From the pieces submitted some of them will be selected to be displayed at the Surrey Wood Turners Open Day in October.



SUPER NOVA by David Marsh

The name of the challenge is:-


The title for this challenge stems from a piece of work displayed by David Marsh called “Super Nova”. Using the related word “Stellar” as your inspiration produce a piece of turned work with star like qualities.

To use a phrase often used by commentators, let’s put in a “Stellar performance” as a tribute to the thought, ingenuity and skilled craftsmanship shown in the work that David brought to the club.
