Woodturning II with Rick Angus
Now that you have made a few bowls on a glue block, join us to learn the next level of cross-grain bowl turning techniques. We will use the fundamental cutting technique taught in the Basic Woodturning class and begin class with a refresher exercise. We add additional wood mounting techniques including four-jaw chucks, single screw mounting and very accurate rim jam chucking. Workflow will be a three-step process, each step using a different mounting technique. These methods add versatility to your repertoire and assure accurate mounting on the same axis each time. The result will be a consistent efficient process.
Sharp tools are crucial to good woodturning. Following a demonstration, try your hand at sharpening tools. Bring your own tools and learn to sharpen them (keep in mind that badly profiled tool may require too much work to complete in class, but we will get you started.) Efficient sanding and finishing techniques will be covered as well.
Class is limited to those who have completed the Night time Beginning Woodturning or the weekend Basic Woodturning so that we all begin with a consistent experience. Bring your design ideas, tools and questions and prepare to jump to the next level of cross-grain turning. Sign up today. Space is limited.
