Oliver and Rich

Today my Students were Oliver and Rich from Surry.Oliver is a tree surgeon and he brought some beutiful Sycamore for them to turn Bowls out of.He has had this wood stored away for about 8 years so it is nice and dry and has some beutiful spalting as you can see from the pictures.
Oliver and Rich were realy good company and a pleasure to have here.


  1. Really enjoyable day, it went so quickly.
    Lots of tips, tricks and knowledge through years of experience were handed out throughout the days course.
    I would thoroughly recommend anyone considering taking up wood turning spending a day with George. Advice on equipment and tool choice was invaluable.
    George and Sue made us very welcome,
    Thanks for a fantastic day.

  2. Hi Rich

    Thanks for the feedback it is very much apreciated I am pleased you enjoyed your day here as we enjoyed your company.
    I hope we will see you again some time in the future.

  3. Hi George Sorry I haven't been back to you.
    I would like to say that the course was very informative and relaxed and made for a very enjoyable day.For a beginner I found your sense of humour and teaching technique put me at ease .
    I would recommend this course for anyone who would like to try wood turning and to have a great day.
    Not only do you learn to wood turn but also come away with a beautiful bowl.what a result. If Rich an I can make a bowl anyone can !!
    Thanks you Sue for looking after us so well with refreshments and your hospitality
    Thanks Ollie
