Intermediate turning skills required

Jimmy Clewes will be teaching a two-day turning class

  • Platter including Design and Ergonomics

“Probably my favorite turning to make!

We discuss ergonomics, shape, and form. The bowl gouge, how it’s sharpened and its uses.

The draw cut, push cut, micro bevel, and shear cut also the wing angle and why I like mine a certain way.

The coloring adds real aesthetic quality to the piece, you will either like it or hate it! , but done well and on the right piece of wood can look awesome!”

  • Natural Edged, edge grain vase

There is something so therapeutic about turning wet wood. it is a great way to improve your tooling technique also.

This end grain vase will be turned thin even so the wood does not split when drying. A light can be used when checking the thickness.

Another Ogee Curve and a great looker.

  • Back to Basics Bowl Turning showing Tool and Process Technique

I explain and show you how I turn a bowl.

I will show you a very simple way of how to get a curve every time! , remember it’s hard to refine a cure unless you have a curve in the first place!

My method of hollowing seems logical to me but very few people use it.

Again all will be explained in the demo, but I am sure you will learn something for even the seasoned bowl turners.

We discuss ergonomics, shape, and form. The bowl gouge, how it’s sharpened and its uses.

The draw cut, push cut, micro bevel, and shear cut also the wing angle and why I like mine a certain way.

As an added bonus, Jimmy will work with individuals who have taken one or more of his classes to make more and different projects.

Those who attend and successfully complete three of Jimmy’s classes will receive a beautiful framed “Certificate of Accomplishment”
