Hollow Turning W/ David Ellsworth


I consider these as “problem-solving” events that focus on turning open bowls and hollow forms. People should bring plenty of questions, turned objects they’ve found difficult, and 3-4 small pieces of wood to turn that will help them address personal challenges and needs. I am often asked to turn a natural edge bowl in the morning to illustrate the most common problems of mounting, grain orientation, various methods of cutting, tool design, sharpening and anything else we can pack in. But this is an optional approach. In either case, I will be moving from lathe-to-lathe doing mini-demonstrations that address common problems. I’ll be happy to discuss finished work if people wish and if time allows.  Materials provided. You are welcome to bring in some of your own materials for turning as well.
