default APTGW bodger's ball 2013

Post by Chilli-head on 30th October 2012, 8:56 pm

It appears that the Association of Pole Lathe Turners and Green Woodworkers Bodger's Ball 2013 will take place at Wimpole Hall in Cambridgesire. Which I guess means our newly formed (Wim)pole lathers local group are hosting. Well, talk about in at the deep end !

Should be fun though; date penciled in on the calendar, and I suppose I'd better get building a shave horse to go with my pole lathe ...

I'm not aware of a web page for it yet. If I find one, I'll let you know.

A web search finds lots about previous year's events though, for anyone wanting to know what it is about. There are some videos of the "log to leg" challenge - a race to make 2 matching windsor chair legs from a log in a matter of minutes; it is quite impressive ! It would probably take me the whole weekend Embarassed

For anyone interested in the goings on at Wimpole hall - including the Wimpole lathers and hopefully soon some more info about the Bodgers' ball, Simon (forester at Wimpole) has made a very pretty site here :

A video of a previous Bodger's ball, and the booking form for this year's, is now on the APTGW web site:

http://www.bodgers.org.uk/events

The general public visiting the Wimpole estate will be able to drop in too, I believe, and for NT members that's free. So if you fancy a day out - come and say Hi to the Wimpole Lathers !

There are some photographs taken by the local organiser, SImon the Wimpole forester, here, if anyone is interested. There is even a Chilli-head in there, with a keen young apprentice woodturner.

They're lovely photos - it looks as if it was great fun but cold!!
