    Well we have been back out in the workshop again tonight and Finley’s turned his second bowl.

    A bit of rippled Sweet Chestnut.

    A very fine looking bowl it is too. My second attempt wasn’t that good. He’s got a good teacher though Ed mate. Nice one!

    I agree Woody. We should all be looking to the next generation to keep woodturning alive. One of my favourite rants is the fun police stopping “proper” technical studies in our schools.

    Far from being accidents waiting to happen, we were taught to respect the tools and machines, and how to use them safely. It is a scary thought that anyone with access to a computer and some payment method can buy a very dangerous machine and start using it with no knowledge or supervision.
    At least when schools were allowed to make decisions concerning education, those of us who chose to participate in technical subjects came away with half a chance of not maiming ourselves.

    Tom good point I have never given it a lot of thought, but your right we don’t let the young use power tools and machines at schools now days but they can buy one at any age a power tool ?
