An easy day with Ed

Ed my Student today was here for a days tuition because his Mates clubbed together to buy him a thirtieth Birthday present.
Ed was very good company and very easy to teach so I had a very nice relaxed day. Ed's Wife Samantha is expecting their first baby in August so this bowl will be a nice present for her as the rim is coloured turquoise her favourite colour.
Thank you Ed for making my day very enjoyable that is a great bowl you turned.


  1. I had a fantastic time on a one-day course with George. I arrived having had some limited experience on a lathe, although my efforts to date left much to be desired, which George will vouch for! George and Susan were very welcoming from the outset, and we spent a little while chatting before cracking on with it!
    Immediately, I was learning all sorts of tips which would make my future woodturning better, beginning with the origins of the timber and sourcing and treating timber blanks. We then spent the morning running through the series of tooling and finishing processes, to form the bottom of the bowl.
    After lunch, we flipped the bowl and played around with some decorative techniques before finishing the top of the bowl.
    George was a great teacher and made the whole process clear and memorable, giving brief demonstrations before letting me develop the techniques myself.
    I left with a big smile on my face and my wife was very pleased with her bowl!
    Obviously you can only learn so much in a day. However I have come a long way from where I was and am eager to get practising my newly learned skills.
    All the best,


  2. Thank you for the wonderful review we are pleased you enjoyed your day here and your Wife is pleased with her bowl. We enjoyed your company and you were a pleasure to teach.
    Regards George and Sue
