Twisting the Night Away

~~~~~

With Richard Findley


The membership gave a warm welcome to newcomer, Richard Findley, on his first demonstration at our club in October 2018. When he said he was going to do some spindle turning there were a few strange looks as the knowledgable audience thought it was going to be boring. How wrong could they all have been.


Yes Richard started his demo with some straightforward spindle turning, but the way in which he explained it in great detail was a revelation. He showed how to go about marking out on a consistent basis using a template, creating beads and coves and even the way the tools should be used in the most efficient and effective way.  Marking out for a barley twist and the way in which it is created really the membership enthralled. At the end of the evening the rapturous applause said it all.


Richard may have started out life as a furniture maker at his dads company but once he found turning there was not turning back. He now has his own business “The Turners Workshop”.
