Wood Turning 2013-2014

Jonathan has created a wonderful space for wood turning.  He has given Kirti and I lessons on his lathe.  We have both learned to turn a bowl out of a block of wood.  Jonathan is learning to make all kinds of things and is constantly experimenting.  As a group, we have now added wood collecting to our list of activities.  Below you'll see photos showing a lesson on using the lathe.
