Saturday 18th June

On Saturday Martin had three students for Improvers Bowl Turning Course. This course is designed for turners who already have experience in bowl turning but wish to progress their skills and take it to a perfection level. Martin guided his students through the bowl turning, explaining bevel angles on tools, chucks and mounting options and proportions of a bowl for the excellent result and satisfaction of a student.

If you are struggling with your turning, book a course with a professional woodturner who will put you on a right path.
