I had a great day with Rick we had so much fun

the high light of my hoilday in New Zealand Aug 09.

 

 

 My name is Lana visiting from Australia

We called in on Rick at his studio Wednesday 12th Aug 09 he was making turned pens

When I told him I had made a turned pen on my woodlathe back home

well he walked over to me and handed me the tool and

said you can make this pen and I will have time out and maybe I will learn something.

bugger me / I had to turn that pen and show him I could do it

 After I had finished the kauri pen

 I didnt want to let him back on his lathe I was having fun turning wood in New Zealand.

Well Rick being Rick

 He said I had done a great job and gave me the pen I had turned out of green coloured Kauri wood.

We all had a great afternoon and I booked in the next day for tuition

on bowl turning and made a lovely kauri bowl along with learning

how to cut up wood for turning from the log , drying wood, sharpening turning tools,

and how to do the six cut of woodturning  and learnt all about his new wave set of turning  tools .

If you want to have a fun day call in on Rick at his studio.

You can't get lost just look for the big sign with his photo on it

it's about 12 foot high x 5 foot wide

and I like the piece at the bottom that says

 Rick Taylor world famous kauri wood artist

Hi Mike from USA

I had a day with Rick in the work shop

 7th August 09  made lots of shavings and I even get to take home a finished kauri candle holder

and a set of the RT new wave turning tools

the last time I turned wood was at school a long long time ago

I will now go home and set up that woodlathe I have in my shop and get to turning wood

 

Hi  David is the name from the UK

I came back to have a day with the Master / 18th July 2009

an early birthday present from Veronica my wife

a great day I had after the last time I worked on a wood lathe 50 years ago.

From Rick, good on you mate have fun
