Introduction to Bowl Turning
You must be checked-off on the lathes before taking this class!
Turning a bowl from a block of wood involves learning a series of turning techniques, including scraping vs cutting on the bevel, safe workholding in a chuck, and understanding wood grain. In this class, students will turn a small bowl from either a green log or 8/4 lumber, and learn how to advance through the process—how to evaluate the wood, shape the outside, cut a tenon to mount the bowl in a chuck, and hollow the inside. Finishing will be discussed in relation to the intended purpose of the bowl, and whether a student opts to turn green or kiln-dried lumber.
Wednesday, November 15, 6:00 to 9:30 pm
Maximum three students per class . You’ll be using the wood lathes and both HSS and carbide turning tools.
This class is open to Bodgery members interested in advancing their turning skills. Kids 10 and up ok if they are truly interested in woodturning, but under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
If a student already has turning tools, please clear them with me before class—gouges should be sharpened before use.
Closed toe shoes are required. Long hair must be pulled back. No exceptions. The class meets in the “Woodturning” part of the Shop where the wood lathes are located.
If necessary, please cancel at least 24 hours in advance since class size is limited by the equipment available. Please arrive on time. Students arriving 15 minutes will not be allowed to take the class.
