Turning Wet Wood with Jimmy Clewes October 8-9, 2022
Turning wet wood is probably the most fun possible when it comes to woodturning. Wet wood is easy to cut, which builds up good tool control and confidence. This class is designed for all abilities and will cover the topics of sharpening, tool selection, aesthetics and embellishment. Students will turn natural edge bowls, and other very thin shapes and forms including an end grain vase. Another plus about wet wood is how it can move into some amazing shapes. Jimmy will spend time talking about turning techniques, wood selection, form and holding the work safely. By Sunday students will have completed several pieces that will definitely help boost their confidence.
