 Today my Students were Paul and Martin on a Box making day
I have lost count of the times Paul has been here over the years but it was a first time for Martin.
The day was spent making Box's with Pewter inserts in the lids.
Both did very well as you can see from following pics

Yesterday my Students were Dan and Ed and both look like they will be taking up Woodturning as a hobby.
They both took to Woodturning easily and I am sure they will be good turners in the future.
Very well done both of you two very nice Sycamore Bowls to take home
