Neville who came here yesterday for some bowl turning tuition is a retired farmer. He first saw me demonstrating at yandles show in September where he bought a lathe and tools.
Farmers are always good with their hands and Neville is no exception.
Neville turned a very respectable beech bowl with very little impute from me and I am sure he will go on to be a very competent turner.

Very well done Neville


  1. George,

    Many thanks for an educational and interesting day in your
    workshop. As a complete novice I cannot emphasize enough the importance
    to any beginners of going to a professional turner such as yourself to
    get tuition before starting out. I am looking forward to practicing at
    home the techniques that you demonstrated so clearly and with such
    great patience. Being quickly " hands on " was a great help as well as
    a confidence boost.

    Once again many thanks,


    P.S. My
    beautiful bowl has been much admired.

  2. Thank you Neville
    It was a very enjoyable day as you were very easy to teach and good company.
    I look forward to seeing you in the near future.
