A Taste Of Bowl Turning with: Rick Angus
All

Sunday, May 12, 10 AM - 4:30 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: $135.00

A Taste Of Spindle Turning with: Rick Angus
Beginner

Saturday, May 18, 10 AM - 4:30 PM

Description: In this fast-paced class, students will be trained in fundamental chisel and gouge spindle-cutting techniques of spindle woodturning. Using these techniques, turners cut wood efficiently and leave a smooth accurate surface in 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. This class focuses on practicing proper techniques and we make a series of totems that contain examples of each cut that you learn; these serve as a reminder of the techniques that you learned. 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. By putting all the techniques together, we will develop an eye for making the shape desired. The results of your practice are your totems for use as reference when making other projects.
