Greetings

Once again it our meeting showed the depth of knowledge available to us all.  Paul Trolove created a wonderful presentation on scrapers.  He demonstrated the techniques for sharpening scrapers and putting the edge.  They fascinating thing was the burnisher was not used with a huge amount of pressure – some were under the impression the white knuckle method was required.

During the presentation Paul referred to the following Fine Woodworking articles

  • Fine Woodworking – Issue 227
  • Fine Woodworking – Issue 189
  • Fine Woodworking – Issue 74

Niven brought along a scraper that doesn’t need sharpening – you can find more information here

After the evening cup of tea, show and tell was held.  Two interesting pieces of work were shown, the first was a gift turned by Joe Farrow (Stunning), and the second a piece of work Peter Field was undertaking – good luck with that Peter.
