Precision and Flow
Darren Oates is a maker of fine furniture. He loves curves and
beautiful shapes. That makes getting things to fit perfectly all the
more challenging – see some of his work at
Alex Springall is a maker of fine boxes. He loves to use complex
geometric designs, like his Icosahedron box – see some of his work
Tony Anderson makes things to an extraordinary level of precision.
He has a drill-press that can be computer-positioned to a
thousandth of a millimetre.
How do they go about getting things “just right” each time?
Is it a case of having the right equipment? Or does one also need a
particular state of mind? What can recreational woodworkers learn
from their experiences and the studies that they have undertaken?
Our three speakers will provide practical advice about how they
perform their work and show members what equipment they find
most useful in ensuring accuracy and precision in their work.

We will be meeting in the William Room on the first floor.
