    Natural Edge Bowls

    Neal DeVore will be teaching our February class on Natural Edge Bowls.  This class is for beginner to intermediate students.  You must have turned a bowl or two and be familiar with the use of a bowl gouge.  The procedures include:


    1. Prepare the blank and design considerations

    2. Mount the blank between centers using 4 prong drive center (although two prong is preferred)

    3. Turn the outside shape using bevel rubbing techniques. Prepare a 55mm tenon

    4. Reverse the blank and place in 4 jaw chuck.

    5. Using bevel rubbing techniques remove the interior wood using a penetrating or plunging cut in steps. Inside shape to match the outside

    6.. Sand and remove the tenon.


    Wood will be provided.  You can bring your own 3/8 to 1/2" bowl gouge or use the club's tools.


    See attached link prior to attending the class.


    See Map Here for location of class.

       Although he is a relatively new wood artist, Rudolph Lopez has always had a love of natural objects and the environment in which they flourish. Rudy began his relationship with wood as a craftsman of fine furniture and cabinetry.  

       

       His desire to explore wood-turning began to develop when he received a natural-edge turned bowl as a Christmas gift from his best friend. Since that time, Rudy’s natural sense of curiosity has led him to explore the techniques necessary to transform wood from a simple rough chunk into an piece of aesthetic beauty.  He has the ability to look at an object, understand how it is made, and recreate it with very little effort.   


       Rudy has demonstrated at the AAW Symposiums on multiple occasions.  For our event Rudy will be demonstrating bowls, boxes, hollow forms and how to make turnings thin. It will be a great time to watch and learn from a world renowned wood turner.

    Mushroom Project   

    Learn to use the spindle gouge the right way from the mushroom master himself - Phil Sargent.

Blanks from limbs will be provided  and a great time for the student supported by one on one coaches. Spindle gouge is a must part of your tool arsenal. Use club tools or bring your own


    YouTube video by Carl Jacobsen can/should be viewed prior to attending the class.

       Lidded End Grain Box

      This class is aimed at 3 key box making skills: end grain hollowing and finishing,  lid layout and fit, and  jam chucking and reverse turning of top and bottom.  Some steps will be turned before class so students have time to practice processes critical to a successful box.  See THIS outline for making the box


      Boxes are a challenging basic turning project because of the steps and precision required.  You will be most successful in class if you are experienced with other spindle turning projects and have learned tool control to make fine and accurate cuts.  


      We will provide sharp school tools: ⅜” -  45° fingernail spindle gouge, 1” roughing gouge,  1” skew, parting tool and 1” dome scraper.  You may use your sharp personal tools.  Wood will be provided as part of the $10 class fee.


      Please study the outline and bring a copy for reference to the class.  Also watch THIS 12 minute video showing the project and the turning techniques we will use.
