Davids Birthday present

David's Wife Penny treated him to a days woodturning tuition for his Birthday.
Although David has his own Lathe and tools he felt he would benefit from some formal Tuition.
David turned a very nice bowl from Beech and hopefully went away with more confidence.

Well done David you did very well.

Saturday with Paul

My Student today was paul who was treated to a days Woodturning Tuition by his Wife Hannah.
Paul has got a lathe at home but I have a feeling he will be updating it quite soon.
Paul got on very well today and took to turning like a duck to water.

Keep up the practice Paul you have the makings of a good turner.

Neils third day

This was Neil's third and last day for this year but He promises to come back again next year we will look forward to that as he is great easy company.
To round off the three days Neil turned a very nice Beech Bowl from the same log as the other two pieces.
This one is cross grain and the other two were end grain.
Neil has a very nice set of three pieces from this trip and he said he has just the place to put them in his bedroom.

Here are a few pics from the day.
