Lathe Turning: The Wooden Bowl

Course Overview

The wooden bowl is a reflection of both utility and beauty—an inspiring craft form to experience. Explore the grains of northern birch as you learn the safe operation and techniques needed to turn wooden bowls on an electric lathe. From tree to bowl, working with fresh cut wood, learn how to identify the best parts of a tree for a bowl blank and how to orient stock for the best grain patterns to match the outcomes you desire. To ensure longevity and finishing of the bowl, drying techniques will also be covered. Take home a traditional utility bowl for the kitchen. Your materials fee includes all wood for projects plus the use of individual lathes and set of tools.
