Andy's Birthday treat

Today my Student was Andy and it is his Birthday.
Andy's Wife Rachael treated him to a days Woodturning Tuition because it was his Birthday today. Andy has recently acquired a lathe and tools the tools are OK but the lathe is a bit limiting.
After using one of my Axminster teaching lath's he has decided the second hand lathe he has is just not good enough so he is going to buy a new Axminster lathe.
The lathe he has does not have variable speed so Andy can now see how much better turning is using the variable speed.
Axminster have some good deals on at the moment so it is a good time to buy.
Andy had a days Bowl turning and turned a very nice Sycamore bowl.

Well done Andy keep it up Mate.

  1. Big thanks to George for his patience, expertise and vision on my Wood turning day.
    I arrived not really knowing what to expect from a 1-2-1 tuition - but I was warmly welcomed by both George and Susan.
    The day ran at a relaxed pace, with good measures of refreshment breaks and extra learning, demonstrating techniques that George uses on his masterpieces.
    The workshop is extremely well equipped and made me realise immediately that I need to update my equipment in order to consistently achieve quality results.
    I can't fault the course content, methods of teaching or the endless supply of treats, drinks, lunch, and even cake !
    Thank you so much, I had a fantastic time, and I can guarantee I will be back for a visit !
