It's the last weekend of the 2014 season and still going all out! Couldn't help it with "How to Turn an Exact Sphere without Measuring with Hans Weissflog," Mitered Dovetails with Mack Headley" and "Making a Federal Executive Document Box with Jeff Headley & Steve Hamilton" in the shop!
Jeff Headley and Steve Hamilton are no strangers here at the school. This time they bring with them a pair of Serpentine Sofa Tables just begging to be built and find a class just waiting to build them. It's always a guaranteed good time whenever and whatever project they work on, as another class discovered this week.
Hans Weissflog has been making small boxes in Germany which have literally redefined what's possible on a lathe. This week he graced our shores to share some of that expertise with a sold-out class of excited woodturners. Nobody who attended will ever think about turning the same way again!
We are extremely glad to welcome back Mack Headley to MASW. This week he takes his class through an exploration of 18th Century Carving techniques and motifs. Mack is an excellent teacher and a true authority on period carving, as his student discovered through the course of this 5 day class.
This weekend our classes included "Shellac: The Forgotten Finish with Mitch Kohanek,"Making Straight & Curved Waterfall Edges With Michael Fortune" and "Building a Windsor Bench with Greg Pennington." Plenty of fun no matter what your interests!
We were very pleased to have Andy Cole join our instructor ranks and he brought a wealth of information about bowl turning to share with his students. They spent the week absorbed in all manner of bowls and the associated techniques. Andy was definitely a real hit!
