Turning figured wood comes with a host of challenges. This class will focus entirely on ‘abnormal’ wood and how those changes in the grain affect woodturning. Students will have access to a wide range of figured woods and will explore tool technique, grain orientation, sanding and final finishing. Special attention will be paid to grain tear out, wood strength, and pairing the best finish to get the figure to ‘pop.’ This class is appropriate for all turning levels.
