Mark St. Leger Demo '04

Click on thumbnail for full size image

The early morning preparations for the Mark St. Leger demo on Saturday, May 22nd

Lot's of great raffle prizes are layed out for the attendees to view

And yet some more prizes

The lathe, monitors, cameras, and supplies are ready but where's Mark?

What a pleasant surprize when Bob Rosand walks in

And even more of a surprize when Linda Van Gehuchten comes in as well

Only moments to go before the start and where's Mark?

Actually, we knew that Mark's flights were cancelled by bad weather and Bob and Linda had volunteered to pitch hit until Mark arrived

So right on time, the demo started with Bob Rosand

Bob mounted a block to demo how he makes his famous hollow ornament

He shapes the basic globe leaving sufficient strength on the back of the globe so he can hollow it

Bob drills the globe to allow for hollowing sized for the finial attachment

Because he is left handed, Bob has to hollow from the audience side of the lathe

A pair of bent coat hangers works nicely as a wall thickness measuring tool

With the walls as desired, the globe is sanded, finished, and then ...

parted off

Bob mounts the block to make the lower finial from

Because of the thin sections, the orientation of the grain is important for strength

Bob doesn't use the tail stock for this part

The block is left at maximum strength as it is worked from the very end towards the headstock
