Clive my Student today

My Student today was Clive an IT worker whatever IT is I get lots of IT workers I know it is something to do with Computers.If it has more than an on and of button I am lost.
Anyway Clive is obviously quite practical and works well with his hands because as you see he turned a beautiful Bowl from a very nice Beech Blank.
I really enjoyed today as Clive was great company and a pleasure to teach
Very well done clive.


  1. I very much enjoyed my one-day woodturning course with George Foweraker. The day was well structured, and by the end of it I had a beautiful finished wooden bowl to show for it, all my own work - under George's watchful eye and guiding hand. George started with a little introduction to wood itself, which showed where the different possible "blanks" for a bowel might come from in a tree trunk, and the challenges and possibilities with each position. Then I was introduced to my selected piece of wood, and we started setting it up on the lathe. As we worked together through the various different tools, George introduced each one, and showed me how to use it. His years of experience and patience came through, and I felt very comfortable taking up the tools. Once I'd started using each of them myself, he was on hand to guide and instruct as appropriate. All in all, I finished the day with a full day of hands-on experience, and a beautiful bowl. A great day's work!
    Thanks again - and to your lovely wife for the lunch.
