Woodturning is immensely satisfying and fun! The shavings fly as a form begins to take shape, from a rough chunk of freshly felled wood or a carefully prepared laminated woodturning blank. Anna feels incredibly lucky to get such enjoyment out of her work! She is a hard-working perfectionist though, never cutting corners and her pieces are always meticulously finished.
