Dates: 6/9 - 6/13
Tool List: Click here for tool list
This is the next step for those of you that have completed a course with Alan, or who have had at least a year of turning experience. Alan will take themes covered in his first course and challenge the students to greater development. This will include duplicating a turned furniture leg, developing greater skill with the skew chisel, developing form and skill in bowl turning (by turning three different bowl forms, each with particular difficulties in fine shaping and execution), exploring the fascinating area of bowl/vessel turning known as "hollow turning" (which includes demonstrations on commercially available tools, as well as the process for making tools for this type of turning), and creating turned lidded boxes with variations of joining the lid to base and a number of other design options. This class will push each student to a higher level of turning excellence.
