Beginning by roughing the blank to a cylinder, we practice the planing, chamfer and peeling cuts with the skew chisel. We proceed to the detail gouge and learn coves and beads.

Class Status: Open
Instructor: Rick Angus
Skill Level: None
Class Size: 3-6

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.

Turning Natural Edge Bowls

Part 1: Saturday, April 28, 10 AM - 4 PM
Part 2: Sunday, April 29, 10 AM - 4 PM

Class Status: Open
Instructor: Rick Angus
Skill Level: Intermediate/Advanced
Class Size: 3-6
Tools Required: None
Description: Turn natural edge bowls from wet local hardwoods recently cut and provided by instructor. Students will receive a refresher in the fundamental gouge and scraper cutting techniques. We focus on developing an eye for making a pleasing shape while incorporating the bark of the tree as the rim of the bowl. We touch-up your graceful bevel-guided cutting technique thus helping you to form the smooth curves of the bowl. This bowl requires a steady hand as cutting the rim is interrupted--you cut a bit of the high part of the rim then skip to the high part of the other side. We focus on careful aim to get a graceful curve through this interrupted cut. Blanks of wood will be mounted between centers and the “bowl inside the wood” will be visualized before cutting so you control that the grain pattern and bark rim position in the finished bowl. We shape the outside of the bowl, remount the blank in a chuck and cut the inside. At home, the bowls will dry and easily can be sanded with a round pad in a drill.
Prerequisite: Basic bowl turning
