This class will cover everything from selecting the right piece of wood, to safe machine operation and techniques, to final polishing.

Learn. Students will be trained in fundamental gouge and scraper cutting techniques and developing an eye for making the shape desired. We learn how to use the bevel gracefully to guide the knife edge along a smooth curve and why this technique allows such smooth tool control. We sand to perfection and add a quick oil finish to bring out the luster of your work. This fundamental technique can be used to turn bowls of many sizes and shapes.

Make. You’ll make a beautiful hardwood bowl ready for the finish of your choice.

Saturday & Sunday, August 31 and September 1, 9am – 5pm
