A Taste Of Bowl Turning with: Rick Angus
All

Sunday, March 24, 10 AM - 4 PM

Description: In this fast-paced class, we explore fundamental gouge and scraper cutting techniques for cross-grain woodturning. Using these techniques, turners cut wood efficiently and leave a smooth accurate surface on their work. We learn how to use the bevel gracefully to guide the knife edge along a smooth curve and why this technique allows such smooth tool control. Any surface imperfections are smoothed with a scraper and develop an eye for making the shape desired. We will mount a round section of a plank on a faceplate and turn the outside profile of the bowl and provide a spigot or recess on the bottom. Using a scroll chuck, we remount the blank on the spigot or in the recess and turn the rim and inside of the bowl. Lastly, we grip the bowl by the rim in a jam chuck and finish the foot. This fundamental technique can be used to turn bowls of many sizes and shapes. In such a short class, we focus on learning technique rather than production; it's a perfect way to get a taste of bowl turning to see if you really like it.
Tuition: $110.00

Build A Live Edge Coffee Or End Table with: Brian Days
Beginner

Part 1: Saturday, April 13, 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Part 2: Sunday, April 14, 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Description: Live edge furniture, also known as natural edge furniture, is furniture that celebrates wood in its most dramatic, organic and irregular form — by showing off bark, spalted areas and cracks. Creating a live edge piece involves letting the natural properties of the slab take the lead. This is an exciting experience, as the tree, in essence, becomes your co-designer. In this 2-day (all weekend) course, students will learn how to evaluate and select slabs from among a diverse array available for purchase at Woodcraft, and to design a coffee table or end table, capitalizing on the woods' natural beauty. Students will then be taught to surface the slabs and to inlay bowtie splines that stop naturally occuring cracks from getting larger and add aesthetic value to the project. Next, they will construct and apply handmade wooden legs using time-tested methods of joinery. Both power tools and hand tools will be used. Finally, advice on wood finishing products and techniques will be provided to all students. Instructor, Brian Days, owner of Red Birch Designs, had a 20-year career in the pharmaceutical industry before deciding to pursue a life-long passion for furniture building. Classically trained at the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts, today Brian is living the dream, building furniture and passing on his knowledge to others through teaching.
Tuition: $345.00
Tuition Notes: Materials Cost Includes The Price Of Your Slab ($75-$200, Depending Upon The Size And Species Of Wood) PLUS $45 For Additional Woods.
