WKS436: Woodturning Workshop - Bowl Making
Class Number 695-51426

In this 3-1/2 hour workshop, you will learn basic bowl making on the lathe, from a square maple board to finished bowl. This workshop will cover sharpening and tool shape; the four basic cuts and how to best use them; initial mounting; roughing to round and hogging off; techniques for re-mounting the bowl; shaping the exterior; hollowing and interior finish; sanding; reversing the bowl blank and turning the foot and bottom. Time permitting, we may discuss green turning techniques.

Material costs include a 6x6x2 maple blank for each student. If you have your own bowl gouge, please feel free to bring it.

We recommend taking and passing the Basic Wood Lathe Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class before taking this class.
