This week is all about woodturning for furniture and is highlighted by lots of between-the-centers work and the mastery of the Skew Chisel. Alan's students got lots of time on the lathe exploring all the different cuts you could make and worked on a 3-legged stool to hone those new skills.
Derek Weidman brought a whole new kind of woodturning to MASW as a lucky class got to find out first hand. It's amazing what you can do when you combine multi-axis turning with carving and sculpting!
Basic Woodworking with Marc is a great way to start your journey int0 the craft of woodworking as this class learned over the course of 5 busy days. Especially when you go home with your first piece of furniture!
Nobody we know is better suited to showing what hand tools can do than Stephen. By the end of this class everyone had benefited from Stephen's demonstrations and they are well on the way to making any shape they desire.
All the way from Israel came Eli Avisera, one of the best woodturners in the world, to share his take on the art of woodturning with this lucky class of students. Everyone appreciated the opportunity to work with him and left with new turning skills!
One of the annual favorites at the school is Doug Stowe's decorative box class and it's not hard to see why once you see the pictures. Everyone took multiple boxes home while they honed their skills and their design sense with each new box!
