Here are 3 students with the pieces they made in my class on Thursday
Left to right. Tom, Scott, and Steve.
They were taking my "2018 Winter Woodturning Workshop" class in my Studio in Poughkeepsie NY.
Scott was a new student. Scott very quickly became a very good turner.
Tom and Steve are both very good turners. They have taken the same class over and over a couple of times. We just keep doing more and more complex things. They enjoy coming to the class for fun and camaraderie.
Tom made a Vase out of Ambrosia Maple. The shape was from a photo I took in Portugal of some pottery.
Scott made a "Natural-Edge Vase" from page 101 of Mark Baker's "Weekend Woodturning Projects" book.
Steve made a "Burr Oak Bowl" in Maple (not Burr Oak) from page 131 of John Hunnex's "Woodturning Forms & Materials" book.

I took a couple of action shots for each student. I am just going to
present them with no commentary.
I was too busy teaching to take more photos.
Tom is using my Hollowing Rig. For more info click
Note: I have 2 of these Hollowing Rigs. Thus 2 out of 3 students in each class can use my Hollowing Rig. I plan to getting a 3rd Hollowing Rig, if I run into a real need for it.
