“In my workshop I have three top of the range Hegner VB36 bowl turning lathes. All turning is done using green wet wood. Green wood is easy to work with little or no dust. I supply everything used during the day including lunch, tools and wood, safety visor, gloves & dust mask for sanding. We stop regularly for breaks.
On a one day bowl making course there is an introduction to the workshop, lathe, tools and how to work safely. How to stand correctly at the lathe while turning wood with minimum effort.
In the morning we will learn easy cutting techniques with a bowl gouge. How to work safely and develop tool control while making simple shapes, usually a wooden ball and spinning top. After lunch we will make a bowl around 30cm diameter from wet wood. The bowl will be sanded by students. All completed work can be taken home.”
