Peter from Reading

Last Friday and Saturday I was teaching Peter from Reading.Peter is a member of Berkshire Woodturning Association Link here where I did an evening demo a couple of months ago.
Peter is a novice turner who quite sensibly decided to get tuition  before he got into too many bad habits.
We spent two days going through Safety,tool profiling and sharpening ,obtaining and processing wood,proper and safe use of tools and equipment .
Peter was a very sensible student who made notes all the way through the two day coarse even though he was given An Aide Memoire to take away that covered everything we did and more.The Aide Memoire is the same as the one Mark Sanger gives his Students Mark kindly gave me permission to use it.
Both days Peter patiently practised and perfected his tooling on face and spindle work and completed two projects as you can see in the following pics.
