A good old Biker Boy

Les my Student today is a Harley man looking for a new hobby.
Les's Wife Marion treated him to a days Woodturning Tuition to get him out from under her feet.
I think Les will be taking up turning in the near future and I hope he does because he took to it like a duck to water.
Les turned a very nice Beech Bowl.
