First woodturning class

Sometimes you realise life is short, and it's time to do some of the stuff you always wanted to do. One such thing is woodwork, something women never got a chance to do when I was at school. The girls were marched off to sewing and cooking, all the better to make us happy homemakers.
We have a local woodturning club so last night it was off to see them. I had visions of beautiful salad bowls and arty goblets. But no. Little wee spinning tops or, as I call them, toggles.
They might look like not much but I have plans for them. Watch this space.
