Last week Cadbury college product design students had first-hand experience from a very talented Woodturner. Students got a chance to speak to Bob Mercer who is a professional Woodturner. As well as getting to see Bob share his craft students had an opportunity to get tips and tricks when dealing with wood for their own projects.
A bit about Bob…
I have always enjoyed
working with wood and a few years ago enrolled on a woodworking course at the local high school. Whilst on the course I noticed a lathe in the corner of the workshop and asked if I could use it. The class teacher helped me to make a bowl. I WAS HOOKED! I made enquiries regarding qualifications in woodturning and over the next four years, I completed four City and Guilds courses in woodturning.
