Tom Kittle

A Terrific Turning Teacher


On this occasion Tom talked about his time as a teacher, and noting that there were quite a few new member present, pitched his demonstration as more of a “back to basics” session.

Some of the things covered were, getting the best out of a piece of  wood, tool control, shape and safety. Although these may become second nature over time, it is extremely important that the basic and thought processes of novice turners are set on the right path.

This was done admirably by Tom and greatly appreciated by those present.

A full description of the evening and the topics Tom covered can be found in our Information Vault page under the March 2018 issue. The link with bring up a PDF file.

Every time Tom Kittle comes to our club we know we are in for a very informative, fun and thought-provoking evening. Mind you we also look forward to his latest crop of “Billy” jokes and wonder if Billy is based on a real person or just a fun figment of his imagination.
