Johns Birthday present

Johns Wife Theresa (likes to be called Terri) treated John to a days woodturning tuition for his birthday.
John turned a very respectable beech bowl with a rim in Autumn colours because that Terri's  favourite colours.
John has got an old lathe and some own tools but I think after using my modern equipment he will upgrading shortly
Very well done John you are well on the way to making a very good woodturner.

Two days with Keith

Keith's wife Becky treated him to two days Bowl turning tuition yesterday and today.
I have been very busy for weeks now creating a new gallery and teaching so I was very tired and not looking forward to two days teaching but I need not have worried as Keith was great company and easy to teach.
The first day Keith turned a lovely Spalted Beech bowl and the second day he wanted to be more ambitious and turn a natural edge bowl.
With lots of care and me watching over him like a hawk Keith turned a beautiful Cherry natural edged bowl.
Very well done Keith I look forward to seeing you soon and you joining our Woodturning club.

Well done Steve

Today my Student Steve was here for a days bowl turning tuition he has already had some experience at Spindle turning so was very easy to teach.
Steve turned a very nice bowl out of a beautiful spalted Beech blank as you can see from the following pics.
