Segmented Bowl Classes
Here at Woodcraft Norfolk/Virginia Beach we offer a variety of classes. From pen turning to carving, to Adirondack chair making. This week we are focusing on segmented bowl turning.
During this class, students will be shown how to design, lay out, and construct a segmented bowl blank. Students will learn how to build the necessary jigs, and fixtures to cut compound angle segments on a miter saw. The segments are then reglued into rings, which are then joined together to form the outer circumference of a bowl. Bill (the instructor) will show students how to get interesting visual effects resulting from the orientation of the segments that you won't see in any book! There is no end to the creativity involved in the construction of these turnings.
You will walk away from this class with the knowledge of basic segmented bowl construction and a finished bowl blank to take home and turn in the comfort of your own shop.
Our next class is being held April 10th and 12th (this is a 2 part class) 2018.
Classes fill up fast, and with the occupancy set to 6 students per class, it's never to early to come in or call and reserve your spot!
