Simon is an old friend of the club so we were all delighted to see him back after quite some time.

(He’s a very busy man these days).

His theme for the evening’s demonstration was inlaying into wood to enhance and decorate. He used coloured resin, Milliput and even nylon rods. All demonstrated in his usual calm and comprehensive manner.

It was certainly fascinating to see how easy it was to add colour and design to a turned piece and got a few brains working overtime as to how else these inlays could be used to best effect.

A description of the whole evening can be found on our Information Vault page under May 2018.

Simon’s range of tools and accessories continues to increase and these and a whole lot more can be found on his website at: hopewoodturning.co.uk
