turning a nest of bowls

Nicola has finished the video of me turning the nest of bowls yesterday. I hope it is a fitting tribute to George Lailey, “the last bowlturner”

    What a wonderful video and a wonderful tribute, Robin. After being given a copy of “The Reading Lathe” only a couple of weeks ago I was also inspired to do a nest…although I make quite a few…sadly mine is on an electric lathe. But the thought was there. Maybe one day.Much enjoyed. Thanks to the both of you.Andy

    glad you liked it Andy, “the reading lathe” sadly has many inaccuracies but it does give some nice background to George Lailey’s turning. Read it with a pinch of salt handy.
