  1. Classes Are Awesome

    Scott Hampton (verified owner)

    I’m really looking forward to the upcoming ‘Bowl Turning For Beginners’ class on June 2nd.
    I plan to put a bowl blank on my lathe, follow Martin’s instruction in real time, while creating my own bowl.
    I attended today’s ‘Woodturning Tools For Beginners’ on Zoom. Very fun, interesting, and educational. Martin is a great instructor, and knows his stuff.
    Martin is at the top of the list of woodturning teachers. He puts a lot of thought and work in the preparation and hosting his classes.
    Thank you Martin for everything you do. I hope to meet you at the AAW Symposium in Omaha, Nebraska next year.

  2. Beginners guide to bowl turning

    I was a bit apprehensive prior to the demonstration due to having no prior practical experience of wood turning. However, my apprehension was soon unfounded. It was well seen Martin had spent a considerable amount of time developing slides depicting various methods and or different gouges. These slides proved to be very useful. The atmosphere was friendly and no question was to small. And the inclusion, at a later date, of crib sheets to refer to at a later date is a bonus. Keeping up the good work Martin

  3. Another great demo!

    Alison Oram (verified owner)

    I spent another enjoyable evening learning the basics of turning a bowl. This followed on well from the previous weeks demo for beginners regarding wood-turning tools. We were taken through the process at just the right speed with opportunities to ask questions regularly during the session. As it was aimed at beginners no-one felt that they couldn’t ask even a basic question. The on screen graphics really helped to enhance the explanations that Martin was giving and the use of several cameras at different angles was very helpful and you really felt you were getting personal tuition. I particularly found the camera set up further away showing how Martin stands was useful as it clearly showed how to hold the tool and how to move the whole body for certain cuts of the wood. As a new wood-turner I tend to stand very stiffly, gripping the tool too hard! As always Martin was very generous with his time, happy to answer as many questions as were asked and to show something again if anyone needed him to. I would highly recommend these demo’s to any new wood-turners out there. Thanks again Martin.
