I always like to watch Martin’s demonstrations as they are full of information. Martin explains everything in full detail and if you don’t get it the first time he will go over it again. He also answers every question in the Zoom meetings. I think there is a lot of work before and after a […]
A very informative and entertaining evening on the bowl turning IRD. Excellent graphics accompany the real thing so you can really see the tool presentation. Session was around 3 hours, the time flew by, with Martin’s knowledge and passion for turning obvious throughout. Many thanks Martin and your wife.
As usual this was a very professional demonstration and went through all aspects of turning a standard bowl. Tool presentation was especially well covered and gave me areas on which I can improve As ever the camera work was exceptional

He pioneered the importance of […]
What an excellent demo last night. Great graphics and some very useful tips on solving hollowing problems. Martin has the remote demo down to a fine art with his array of cameras.

I have tried this technique holding the ball gouge lower than normal and it proved to be a significant improvement on my previous attempts at cutting bowls. This alone would you pay for the […]
I very much enjoyed the demonstration last night. The camera views and the pace of the demo, to my mind were very good indeed and very good value for money. I was kept both informed and entertained for the entire time. If the demonstrations going forward are laid out in the same format I’ll definitely […]

A fantastic demonstration from Martin as always, very thorough and explains every thing perfect from start to finish.
