Weeks 5 & 6 – Ecole Escoulen – Alain Mailland & Joss Naigeon

9 November 2018

Been a busy two weeks for me at Ecole Escoulen wood turning school in France.

First week was spent learning hollowing techniques with Alain Mailland as well as forging two new tools under his guidance. Not a very good week for producing anything successfully as far as wood turning went and that means I was pushing the limits and learning a lot.

Second week was spent with Joss Naigeon learning how to make all kinds of different boxes with different types of closing lids. Popping lids, piston lids, magnet lids, lifted lids! We then had to design and produce our own box that could be made production style for sale.
