Bit different from his day job - from roof joist carpentry to monkey puzzles!
Aaron attended a two day course last week and on the first day we produced this lovely monkey puzzle bowl for him to take home with him. On the second day Aaron wanted to learn more about how to use the different tools so we went through the various tools that you would use for spindle turning, using and sharpening the spindle gouge, using a skew chisel and then we had a go at turning some beads and coves followed by some end grain hollowing using the various tools. We also went through all the differnt ways you can safely mount the wood on the lathe and why, and how you would rough out a bowl from green wood (wet wood). We had a great couple of days and Aaron went away with some new skills to use in his own workshop along with his carpentry!
