Practicing What I preach

I am always preaching that Tuition is a short cut to good results with Woodturning.
In the past I have had Tuition from six of the top turners in the country. This is all part of my desire to keep improving and extending my knowledge..
Today I have had further Tuition from Paul Hannaby  https://www.creative-woodturning.com/  in the casting and applications of Pewter in Woodturning.
Paul did a Demo in our Club on Pewter work but unfortunately although it was something I had always wanted to get involved it I was unable to make the meeting and missed the Demo.
Recently I have done a couple of pieces that Incorporated Pewter but really I was working blind and I could see there is a lot more to it than I realised.

I spent about half a day with Paul and really enjoyed it as well as learning a hell of a lot.
I took a few pics but as I was getting Tuition it was a bit difficult to do a really detailed WIP so when I have had some more practise I will do a detailed WIP .
Here are a few pics to go on with.
