Ring Box's

Yesterday my student John wanted to make a ring box for his daughters up and coming wedding in August. John was here several months ago for a days tuition but has not managed to set up his lathe yet so has had no further practice. I was pleasantly surprised how much John had remembered from his last lesson. John made two very nice ring box's to give his daughter a choice.
Well done John I am sure she will be pleased with either one.

  1. Hi George,

    Thank you once again for another great day of tuition, very informative and educational!

    I’m glad that you can be so patient, I need it and obviously the Dementia kicks in now and again when I repeat a simple error, but your advice is calmly repeated with no frustration on your part and I usually learn the lesson…

    The facilities are more than adequate for a single student, it must be handy for you to demonstrate on one lathe while I make feeble attempts on the other, but I feel that I am coming on and that;s all down to you.

    Not one, but two lidded boxes completed, not just a first for me but a first and second!!

    As usual, we were well looked after by Sue keeping us awash in tea/coffee not to mention a lovely piece of ham for lunch - I couldn’t wish for more!

    Thanks again, and just as we anticipated, my daughter does prefer the photo of the darker box - great minds think alike!

    Keep up the good work,

    All the best,
