Hi Dennis,
 
I am not a turner but was fortunate enough to see Andrew turning his hats at the Harrogate Wood Working show.
 
Absolutely facinating to watch and you can virtually see the wood shrink as it dries out after he has turned a hat.
 
I was introduced to him by a very kind gent, (i forget his name now), who I spent the entire day with (went alone), who I must thank  him again for introducing me to a whole host of extremely talented people. (household names to most of you guys I bet?)
 
Maybe sometime in the future I will have a go at turning.

You lucky person you . I had heard of him mentioned at Yandles . Apparently he made a stetson at the show . He turned it one day , paper thin and put a rubber band around it . . The next day the rubber band had pulled the 2 sides up to give the cowboy look .  
Make the most of it buddy as I am he will have some great techniques to pick up
