September 21st 2019. Oyster shell competition. There were not too many entries for this competition, perhaps the thought of turning, or maybe designing, an oyster shell article was just too much for many members. There were only nine entries in all :(

Here are the entries and places:

June 15th 2019. 'Beads of Courage' Box competition. There were not too many entries for this competitiom, perhaps because these items are quite large, or maybe for other reasons. Each box has a Beads of Courage button inserted into the lid to identify their intended use. Beads of Courage are given to children who have to go through medical operations, sometimes critical ones, to recognise their courage. There are children who have many beads, usually worked onto strings, which are kept in these or similar boxes.

Come on Beginners, where are you?

Well done to those who took part.


April 6th 2019. Competition of a 'box in a box'. There were a reasonable number of entries for this competition, although we still had only three entries in the Intermediate class - come on people, where are the rest of you?

The difference in the standard of turning between each group was very small and all credit to both the Intermediate and Beginners groups.

Shown below are the entries and placings for each group:

Well done Nick

Sorry we can't show the winning items separately, they were taken away before the photographer got to them!

The extra photo is a complete picture of one that could not be shown whole in the advanced group.

But you can click on the images to see a larger version of them and identify the winners, etc.

Well done to all who took part.


February 2nd 2019. Competition of a turned animal. The standard of turning for this competition was really very good. The downside was that there were only two entries for the Intermediate class which was disappointing.

Here are the runners and winners:

Apologies, there was a late(ish) entry to the Advanced class, but the new picture of the group was so blurred it was (in my opinion) better not to print it. The entry was a handsome mouse with whiskers smiley.

Pictures for the Intermediate and Beginners groups are the same for whole group and winners as there are only two and three entries respectively.

Well done to all who took part.


December 1st 2018. Your Best of The Year competition. A reasonable turnout for this competition of your best turning of the year.
