New to the MASW lineup this year, is Wes Bushor. Wes is a logger by trade and shared his expertise with timber and his pursuit of naturally simple furniture with his students. The result was a whole bunch of fun...and some really cool furniture!
John Ressler is well known in the music circles as a maker of incredible guitars and we know him as a superb craftsman who gladly shares all he knows with his students. He returned this week to lead a class through the crafting of some superb acoustic guitars.
Doug Stowe returns to lead another group of students through the process of making boxes that are anything but ordinary. With judicious choice of wood and a keen eye for design, Doug gives the class the benefit of his years of experience. Then he cuts them loose...
Lynne Hull joins us for a different kind of turning - metal spinning! Her students got lots of hands-on time at the lathes, as well as plenty of help from Lynne as they proceeded to make vessels and bowls galore.
As a multiple time winner of the Veneer Tech Challenge, Scott Grove is well known for his veneer skills. This week he shows how to wavy-match burls to any shape, and then add a solid wood edging to that shape. Whether used as a table top or unique platter, these skills will last a lifetime!
