- Woodturning Fundamentals: Bowls, Boxes and Spindles
- 09/14/09 - 09/18/09
- Center for Furniture Craftsmanship - Rockport
This course is a hands-on exploration of the major areas of woodturning: between-center work (handles, table legs, spinning tops, etc.), face grain work (bowls, plates, stool seats), and hollowed end-grain work (lidded boxes, scoops, goblets). Alan’s instruction emphasizes tool preparation, sharpening, and technique, and provides an understanding of the nature of wood as it relates to turning. Participants work with green wood for bowl turning and kiln-dried wood for between-center work and box making.
Students taking this course are welcome to sign up for the following week’s Woodturning II class, where they can expand on what they have learned. Tuition: $650
