Instructor: Dwight Bender Following my retirement from teaching Mathematics my passion for wood turning was ignited while spending winters in Arizona where I was fortunate to have access to a community woodshop with state-of-the-art equipment and opportunity to benefit from the expertise of master wood turners. I became fascinated by the design and production aspects of segmented bowls using all types of exotic woods. After returning to permanently reside in London in 2019, I joined the London Community Woodshop. Since then, I have satisfied my addiction spending endless hours there endeavouring to make the next bowl more colourful, more detailed, more unique than the previous. Occasionally I am successful!
