Jan's Birthday next Saturday and for a treat she has come to me for a days Woodturning tuition. Jan has also bought a lathe and inherited a set of Turning tools.
The day was very easy for me because Jan is a very quick learner and I only had to show her something once and she mastered it immediately.
Jan turned a very nice Beech Bowl with quite a wide rim that she coloured with her favourite colour Blue.
There is actually three colours with the top colour being blue.
The following pics were taken through out the day.
