Never having done any woodworking I was very apprehensive but George and his lovely Wife Sue made me feel very relaxed and after a coffee I was introduced to woodturning.
With Georg's guidance I woodturned a beautiful Ash Bowl something I never thought possible.
If I can talk Hubby into buying a lathe and equipment this will be the hobby for me.
Thank you George and Sue it was a wonderful day and you will be seeing me again in the future.
