Turning Archive 2005
>I have just returned from Prov, UT after completing the 5 day Richard Raffan workshop. Great instructer/demonstrator, good crew on the course including a few characters and a course "elder" (85 yr young Dr. Wei). Richard is as skilled, and quick, with tools, especially the skew, in person as he is on his videos. Plenty of Antipodean/English humour and down-to-earth tips and advice. He was very ably assisted by a young frenchman Benoit Averly (sp) who has only been turning 3 years but IMHO will become a prominent figure in woodturning.
Only downside was Delta managed to lose both my bags on the return flight!
