Issue 1

Oliver’s Woodturning takes its first steps

Well, this is the first newsletter from Olivers Woodturning. Don’t worry there won’t be an ongoing bombardment of junk mail from us clogging up your inboxes. We will only send something out every few weeks if there something that we want to share.

In this issue you will find some tutorials, our forum members share their work, club event news, details of our current freebie and there is a 10% discount on Robert Sorby texturing tools.

So let’s get started.

Community Contributions

New tutorials

Last month saw the first two tutorials submitted by members of the club.

Segmented Vase Tutorial
Firstly, Brody Lambden sent in a piece on turning a segmented vase. This gives a good step by step process for others to try.You can read it here.
Pen Finishing Tutorial
Secondly, Alan Currans sent in a very detailed piece on finishing pens with CA (super glue). If you are planning on pen turning this is well worth a read.You can read it here.
You can find a full range of pen turning tools, pen kits and pen blanks in our online shop or if you find yourself around Bearsted in Kent why not pop in for a chat.
