Description: This three day class will give you the basic skills necessary to go home and start your own segmented turning project. Spend three days with Dave and he will demonstrate and explain how simple it can be to cut perfect segments and take the stress out of making segmented bowls. Dave will show you how to use the Incra "Modular Jig & Fixture System" to build a sled for cutting segments accurately and consistently with virtually no error correction needed at assembly time. Using this process, you can concentrate on the design and construction of the piece rather then stressing over just making the segments line up and how to get the piece on the lathe and turned without exploding. We can't make glue dry in one day - So on Day one - students will be introduced to and use a sled to cut the accurate size and angles required for each ring. We will then verify accuracy (should not be a problem) - however corrective procedures we be covered - then we will glue up the rings. Day 2 - Students will make and mount the "base" and we will flatten and mount each of the rings. While glue dries we will discuss in depth the construction of the sled and various design and construction options Day three - Glue is now dry and we can actually make a bowl.
