3 day class projects

Here are some pics of projects completed at a recent 3 day intermediate level turning class through Craft Supplies USA. The sycamore bowl has an underturned rim and is not finished. The platter is 11" in diameter and is maple with a lacquer and wax finish. The natural edge bowl is apricot and is finished the same way. The vase is aspen and is not finished. The box is maple with a tulipwood insert in the lid and is finished with Waterlox and wax. Thanks for looking and enjoy.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

don, platters aren't really any harder than bowls. Difficulty comes from getting the right proportions...rim to total diameter and foot to diameter. Instead of cutting a tenon to chuck it, cut a recess and have the chuck grab on the expansion, this way you can get away with a relatively shallow recess. And you can use kiln dried 8/4 lumber.

sawdust it looks like you came home with some winners. Nice work on all of them.

How was the class? Which instructor taught? Do you feel like you got your moneys worth? I've been thinking hard about going somewhere for a 3-5 day class. Very interested in how yours was.

John, the class was the 3 day intermediate level class taught by Dale Nish. His "helper" was Kirk DeHeer, a world class turner in his own right. This is the second class I've taken through Craft Supplies USA. I took a 5 day beginner class there last year with Dale teaching and Paul Chilton was his helper. Both classes were incredible. You'll learn so much, you won't even realize how much until you get back to your shop and turn a few things. CSU is a top notch organization. Everyone there is super friendly and helpful. They think of everything and supply everything you'll need for a great turning experience.

The vase is a reverse turned hollow form...cut a plug from the blank and hollowed from the bottom. Tried to turn the inside larger than the outside on my first attempt...didn't work so well
