The virus


During a holiday in the Dordogne, I visited the castle of Biron,
there was an arts and crafts exhibit.  As I wanted to know more, I visited
  Galerie du Bois Vert in Beaumont.
That's how the woodturning virus took hold of me.

Then I took a one week training course at the  Bel If
run by Dominique PEUCH in Brittany where I learned the basics of turning.

Objects turned during the training course.

 Then, it's no secret, making shavings is the way to improve.
