wandi woodturning club demonstrations
Wandi club has a good demonstrators setup each demonstrator is wired with a wireless microphone headset connected to a amplifier speaker to make it easier for club members to hear the demonstrators commentary. Along with this a camera records the demonstrator in close-up and members can see every aspect on a 51inch colour LCD screen hung from the roof beams.

History: 25 years in the Navy, an additional 10 years in the Navy Reserves, now power station Site Manager undertaking various operational and maintenance roles. Joined Wandi Club in 2005 after a long period of interest in general woodworking making furniture. Joined Wandi to learn different wood turning techniques and to get ideas to improve my wood turning skills from likeminded people. Like most turners I tend to make a lot of turned items but the ones I am most interested in are the segmented thermal coffee cups and a large variety of pens. I make these for family, friends and customers from all over the world.
The facilities at WANDI have improved over the years making the regular meetings a very social place to meet whilst undertaking our hobby of wood turning.
