To open the day we had a demonstration from Gorey woodturner, Pat Carroll. Pat made a big impression and the general feeling when he had finished is that we would certainly love to have him visit us again.

He started by making the neatest spherical hollow form that this writer has ever seen. In fact he made it in two pieces and then glued them together. The joint was cleverly concealed by the narrow beads that became a feature of the piece. He left the narrowest of openings at the top and the whole thing would almost certainly be a wonderful conversation piece wherever it would be on show.
