My student today was Keith who came here for a trial day to see if he liked woodturning.
As you can see Keith made a very respectable Beech bowl and doesn't he look pleased with himself.
Very well done Keith that is a very nice bowl

Tony's Bowl

A couple of weeks ago when I was Demonstrating at Yandle's show I was given a very nice Oak blank by Tony Davis
The wood had a few crack and fissures in it so I have filled them with epoxy car filler.
The bowl is 10" x 2 1/2" finished with hard wax oil.
As this was a nice bit of wood I have made a very Simple bowl.
C & C Welcome
