charles lakinCharles LakinIt was back on 10th June 2012 where Dave was woodturning at the Laverstoke Park Farm Field to Fork Festival which combined a country show with a food festival. It is a great day out for all the family with lots to do for all ages. Dave came to the assistance of Yorkshire chef Charles Lakin (who at the time was the head chef at the Marquis at Alkham in Kent. Charlie is now at the forefront of the Durban dining scene at 9th Avenue Bistro )

Well anyway Charlie was entering the British BBQ championships and was looking for inspiration for a special way to display the fantastic BBQ food that he had prepared for entry into the festival. As he was browsing around Dave The Lathe's display and wooden items that were for sale Charlie spotted some stocky wooden block chopping boards that Dave had prepared from his Dorset timber.

beautiful wooden blocks2

On spying the beautiful wooden block boards Charlie had found just what he was looking for, it was last minute preporation but seemed to fit the bill. Daves wooden blocks were accompanied by 2 of the woodturners favourite, wooden mushrooms. Charlie later took to Twitter describing the wooden blocks as beautiful which as you can imagine made Dave's day.

woodturned honey dippersOne of Dave's favourite item to produce for craft fairs around Dorset and a favourite tool of Winne-the-Pooh is a honey dipper. Honey dippers a turned kitchen tool used to collect the honey from a jar or a container and then drizzle the honey onto bread, scones or biscuits. Traditionally quite large and made of hard wood, an ideal honey dipper just fits diagnonally into your honey pot, you then return the honey dipper back to the honey pot after use, you do not wash it.

spurtles for stiring porridgeMost people will associate wooden kitchen utensils with the medium to large spoons used for cooking or baking. They are still used for stirring different kinds of foods and are preferred because of their versitility, they dont scratch the bottom of the pan and they dont transfer heat like a metal spoon. You may even think of a wooden spatula, but how many of you thought about a Spurtle? A spurtle is a Scottish kitchen tool which dates back to the 15th century, originally flat in shape and used for flipping oatcakes on a hot griddle. Over time the original flat shape became modified and began being used specifically for stirring oatmeal and soups. Traditionally the spurtle would have been manufactured from Scottish maple trees.  

large wooden bowlThis beautiful piece of wood was from a piece of Common or European ash from a tree in Sherborne, a market town in northwest Dorset and on the edge of the Blackmore Vale. The ash tree can live to a grand old age of 400 years, even longer if coppiced and is the third most common tree in Britain. The ash sized 16 inches by 5 which Dave turned into a salad bowl and can be seen in the gallery here. Ash is generally found at lower elevations and grows best on base-rich soils.

Dave The Lathe was at Yetminster Street Fair (Yetminster is a village and civil parish in the English county of Dorset. It lies within the West Dorset district, about 4 miles south-west of Sherborne. It is sited on the River Wriggle, a tributary of the River Yeo, and is built almost entirely of honey-coloured limestone, which gives the village an appearance reminiscent of Cotswold villages.)  and a gentleman came up with this log. He stated 'Bet you cant make something with that', Dace suggested that the gentleman return in quater of an hour.

I nearly finished the bowl and a gentleman turned up at the stall, 'You have made a nice job of that. how much do I owe you for that?'

Nothing replied Dave and the gentleman went away chuffed to bits.

The only problem was that Dave had returned the completed bowl to someone who looked like the original customer, the original customer returned 10 minutes later.

Dave got the original gentleman to return home to collect another piece of timber and fabricated him another bowl.

Eventually one satisfied customer, and one very satisfied freebee.

wooden mushrooms for displayMushrooms are great fun to turn, they are good for people who are wanting to learn how to woodturn. People also like mushrooms, they are a steady seller for Dave the lathe when he is out and about at craft fairs and with The Anonymous Travelling Market

railway sleeper blank

There are always surprises from Dave when he identifies different matterials to use in his woodturning, this railway sleeper blank was no exception. Dave was asked to turn this blank by an aquaintance, as his owner had been shoring up a bank with railway sleepers. the owners dog had carried the railway sleeper up and down the garden. The dog is now getting older and his owner wanted something to remember him by.
