INTRODUCTION


Nothing compares to the experience of taking a piece of wood and watching a shape develop while revealing the secrets nature has hidden in its fibres. Each piece is a new adventure and an opportunity to produce a one of a kind item that was missing in every day life.


Examining a bowl in your hands is to discover a world of secrets, fond memories and tokens of affection. The bowl is fascinating and intriguing, it stems from emotions tied to the natural grain and colour of the wood.


Woodturning is both an ART and a CRAFT. The CRAFT is in how the wood is cut, the tools we use, and how we use them. The shape of the finished piece is the ART. Learning about other ART forms (pottery, glass, sculpture etc.) will improve the ART of our woodturning.


I consider myself to be a reasonably advanced amateur, both in cabinet making and woodturning.
