Chris Pouncy turning tour 2019

Comments Comments


Over 30 years experience working at the lathe underline Chris Pouncy’s reputation as a master of his trade. Nineteen of those years have also been spent demonstrating turning techniques on behalf of Robert Sorby, Sheffield, UK based manufacturers of all manner of top quality tooling and accessories for turners, carvers and woodworkers in general.

Chris has been travelling to Australia for over five years to share his knowledge on turning in presentations which cover aspects of tool selection and usage, lathe operation and safe practices. In particular, the essential skill of sharpening is a focal point. This year, due to popularity, the schedule has been extended to run at 24 venues in all states of Australia.
