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!
Four more great classes this weekend, including: Turned Bracelets with Barry Gross, Scandinavian Bent-Wood Boxes with Doug Stowe, Casting & Mold Making with Scott Grove and Beautiful Borders with John Koch!
Barry Gross's sold-out class continues to be a hit here at the school. Barry's pen's are at the top of the scale, both creatively and technically excellent. This week his participants made almost a dozen pens, with a street value in the thousands of dollars, using all the different options that Barry will demonstrate. By the end of the week, each will be able to make a pen that is uniquely customized for their customer.
