Demonstration by Paul Hannaby

Paul has been turning wood for around 17 years, and is based in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. He is a member of the Cotswold Craftsmen and he exhibits at a number of their events in and around the Cotswolds.

When Paul started woodturning, there was nowhere near as much information available on the Web, so a lot of the learning process was through trial and error. Being the sort of person that liked to experiment and push the boundaries of what he was capable of, this didn't deter him at all!

Paul Howard Demonstration

I am a member of the AWGB (Association of woodturners of Great Britain), the SECB (Suffolk, Essex, and Cambridge Borders), Colchester Woodturning Club. We have a shop selling wood and turning consumables.

I am also a member of the AAW (Association of American Woodturners), and managed to get to the 25th. anniversary symposium in St. Paul, Minnestota.

I now spend much of my time teaching, demonstrating and continuing to develop ideas of how to further my own skills of woodturning in general.

Competition :     Goblet with 1 Captive Ring for Novices, 2 Captive Rings for Intermediates, 3 Captive Rings for Advanced Turners.


*****  The Club now has the facility to accept all major Credit/Debit Cards for shop purchases and the payment of Annual Subscriptions.****
