Date & Time:

Saturday, February 10, 2018;

Begins at 10:00 AM

 Location: Klingspor's Woodworking Shop

Program:

 

Presenter will be Sam McDowell 

This month I will be demonstrating the the basics of turning green wood. Turning bowls out of green or fresh cut wood is where most of us start. Some basic understanding will help you get started towards a good result. I will start with a little ground school about the way green acts and why we need to pay attention to symmetry and how the wood will warp.   

 

I will be showing a logical progression of shaping the bowl with a lot of emphasis on different cuts with the bowl gouge. I hope to make a bowl from start to finish, ready for sanding.

 

In the afternoon session I plan to get into more design features like legs and proportions as well as reverse turning and curing. ( I’m tired just thinking about it).

 

I hope you will join us.
