Well it looks like your well and truly hooked young man what an amazing second attempt I think you are an amazing young man making such a wonderful bowl the future of woodturning is in the hands of young people like you keep at it
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.
