Class Status: Open

Tools Required:
Description: This instructional class will give you the basics necessary to go home and start your own segmented turning project. Spend the day 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 asthetics 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 a segmented project in one day, so the "hands on" part will be limited. You will get to cut a ring of segments and Dave will demonstrate and lecture extensively!
