15 to be precise. 15 very different ways of holding a piece of wood in the headstock of a lathe, although Shane Hewitt assures us he could demonstrate another 10 if only time would allow!
Many thanks to last night's guest presenter Trefor Roberts from the National Assoc of Woodworkers (NAW). He reminded us that tool skills alone do not achieve great wood art pieces. The principles of design and an artistic eye are of equal importance when turning wood.
