Wood turning Friday

Yesterday I had a fantastic day wood turning at Central Saint Martins. Five of us came along for the day to have a go at using lathes to turn our own candlesticks. Sam Sheard, a technician and furniture maker, introduced us to the machinery and took us through each step. I hadn't used a lathe since university so was very rusty and it was great to have a refresher - especially because I have a micro lathe that I want to use to make jewellery! Here is what we got up to: wood-turning-1
