Intro to Bowl Turning with Devon Palmer - Woodcraft of Columbus, OH - Columbus

In this course, which is the next step after our Spindle Turning Class (prerequisite), you will learn how to turn a small wooden bowl from green wood. No, the Sycamore bowl in the picture is not going to be the one you turn, but it represents what you can quickly be able to do once you get the basics down pat and this class will give those basics to you. The blanks you will use are from a tree recently cut down and the wood is still wet or green. Devon will show you how to go thru the process of selecting, preparing, and mounting the wood on the lathe, discuss tool selection/use and sharpening, shaping/turning of the outside/inside, sanding/finishing and drying of the "green" wood bowl! Wow, lots of steps! Devon will also explain the differences between turning green wood and wood that is dry. The cost of this class is $150 and you will leave with the knowledge and confidence to go home and turn a bowl on your lathe along with two bowls you turned in the class.
