Chris and Cathy

Today my Students were Chris and Cathy from Cardiff.
Chris has had an interest in wood for some time and is about to buy a second hand lathe and equipment from a Relative so Cathy thought it would be nice for him to have some Woodturning Tuition.
I have really enjoyed their company today and I feel sure the will be back some time in the future.
They both took too turning very easily and made a couple of very nice Sycamore Bowls.
Chris chose having a textured and coloured rim and actually did the texturing himself.
Cathy chose making a fruit bowl with a rolled edge.

Two Students today Pat and Clive

Today I had two Students Pat and Clive Pat is still working full time and has a basic Lathe and tools. Clive is retired and might take up turning some time in the future.
Pat's day was a treat from his Wife and Family, Clive's was a treat from his daughter.
Both were very good company and easy to teach

Pat turned a very nice Sycamore bowl with a textured and coloured rim.Clive turned a very nice Sycamore bowl with lovely figuring and a concave rim.


Neal is one of my Students from last week.
Neal is greatly into Cycling running and all things keep fit so woodturning is something completly differant.
Neil turned a reall nice Sycamore bowl .
