455 - Turning Club - Coaster and Place Mat theme.

There was a wide variety of woods and of design used to make coasters. The designs included decorative grooves, inlays, lattice patterns and laser cut butterflies.

Clocks and boxes were also brought for display.

Allen Atkins returned from holiday in Canada and demonstrated making a Bud Vase in Yew plus an Ear Ring Stand in a variety of woods.

Roy Boulton, meanwhile, demonstrated making and texturing a lidded box, another box with a threaded lid and techniques for turning a 4 cornered platter.

There is no fixed theme next week - it gives an opportunity to catch up with any missed themes - plus anything else...!
