Paul Howard - Top Trainer

Paul Howard led the clubs first AWGB sponsored training course on Saturday 7th October for six of our members. The objective was to turn a lidded box with a burr inlay and ring, whilst maintaining good tool control and in a safe manner.

Paul led the class in three sections, demonstrating what was required at each stage and waiting for all students to complete that stage before progressing to the next. Committee members David Ritchie and John Peek assisted on the day as all six trainees completed their task and expressed their delight with the results with comments like, "I will make another one of these," and "that's a better way to do it". Proof enough of their satisfaction and enjoyment at a very educational and informative day, punctuated only by lunch and tea breaks.

The club is grateful to Paul Howard for his patience and excellent instructional skill and the AWGB for its sponsorship and now looks forward to holding further classes in new year.

Paul is and excellent turner, demonstrator, designer and manufacturer. To find out more visit is website: www.paulhowardwoodturner.co.uk
