SOME OF OUR STUDENT'S COMMENTS
Hi Michael from Germany
I had a great day with Rick on the Sept 1st 09 I had never turned wood before
and wow look what I made just in one days tuition with the Master
my day with Rick was a present from my wife for my birthday.
My name is Ludo I am from Switzerland
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.
When I get home I am going to take out the wood lathe that is still in the box in storage
that I have had for a long time and never got around to setting it up
From Rick, good on you mate have fun
