Graham had booked in well in advance for his lesson to fit in with a short stay at a local caravan site close to the New Forest, and about 5 mins from my workshop - unfortunately, this second spell of snow put paid to that plan and the site was closed for a couple of days! Not to be put off though, Graham travelled down by car to attend and this is what he had to say about the experience: -
I've recently attended a very informative wood turning course with Andy at his place in the New Forest. During the session it became apparent that my wood turning tools were not suited for the production of bowls but would be
more suitable for turning of spindles, I'm now looking to purchase the more appropriate gouges from a source Andy advised me of.
Many many thanks Andy for all your advice and I will persevere with the techniques you've shown to me.
I would also like to thank you & your wife for the refreshments that were supplied during the day, wishing all the best for the future.
Here is how he got on....................
