Two days for Neale

Neale has been here for two days tuition the first day on bowl turning and the second  between centers turning.
As Neale is an absolute beginner on the first day we went through Safety,tool choice,sharpening and tool profiling.
We then moved on to correct and safe use of tools and Neal made a very nice bowl that was sanded buffed and polished to a very high standard.
The second day we concentrated on producing coves,beads V cuts and the correct and safe use of spindle tools inc the skew chisel
To round the day off Neale made a very nice Ash flower vase.
Neale was easy to teach and quick to learn and I am sure he will go on to make a very good turner.



  1. Really enjoyed the two days that I have just spent with George. The course was very relaxed and I was made to feel very welcome

    As a beginner it was well worth the expense of learning the basics from a true professional and I would recommend anyone thinking of beginning turning to give George a call and attend one of his courses

    Loved looking at some of Georges work too. The colouring pieces are stunning

    I now look forward to starting on some of my own projects confident that I can do so safely and with some experience behind me

    I hope to return next year with some more experience to attend one of the hollow form classes

    Thanks George for helping to get me started

  2. Thank you Neale I am pleased you enjoyed it and I am confident you will put into practice everything we went through.If you are not sure of anything I am only on the end of the telephone .Take your time stay safe and I am sure you will be a good turner.
