Sept 12th meeting – Turn of the Century Golf Club Making

The Art of 19th Century Golf Clubmaking.
Fore! We will take you through the traditional methods used in creating the graceful wooden “long nose” golf clubs used in Scotland for hundreds of years prior to the industrial era. Learning how to use bowsaws, spokeshaves, planes, rasps, card scrapers, and other hand tools as well as finishing techniques to make the wooden shafts and the clubhead can be applied just as well to other facets of fine woodworking. We will focus on the woodworking components, but if time permits, we can demonstrate the grip and whipping application and pouring of the molten metal into the back of the club.
