Masters Fellowship Turning

This class will be a great opportunity to spend a week learning the craft of woodturning with one of the best woodturners in North America. Michael starts off with a detailed discussion of lathes, tool selection, safety, and sharpening. He introduce students to four areas of woodturning: 1) SPINDLE TURNING, including wood selection, use and sharpening of tools for spindle work, offset turning, bending spindles in the microwave, cutting/assembling spindles for application to bowls and furniture, and combining spindles and bowls to make a ladle; 2) BOWL TURNING, how to select and understand inherent qualities of wood, green and dry woodturning, use of gouges and scrapers to get a clean cut, sanding techniques, addition and subtraction of wood to create unique designs, how to turn a bowl with carved feet, turning very thin bowls, and cutting and reassembling bowls; 3) HOLLOW TURNING, including basic techniques, cutting, reassembling to make a fish or teapot, and combining spindles with hollow turning to make a Christmas ornament or rattle; and 4) BOX MAKING, including ways to make a basic box, the use of hook tools, and how to create oval and curved lidded containers. By the end of the week you will be on your way to turning excellence.
