Woodcraft of Nashville
Sun, Jan 20 12:30 pm
In this class, we will cover the steps involved in turning fresh cut firewood into a functional bowl. We will discuss the best methods in harvesting the tree to properly processing the blank on the band saw. Once we have the blanks processed, we will rough turn the blank to a suitable thickness ready for the drying process. I will discuss the different steps of the drying process to better manage wood movement and cracking. Finally, we will take a seasoned, pre-turned bowl and talk about the different chucking methods for re-turning the dry bowl into a finished piece.
