Woodturning is really fun. Especially if you have a good understanding of the techniques, it will become more and more a beautiful hobby! In this woodturning workshop you will learn, among other things, how to hollow out. In 2 days all the techniques of hollowing, cutting and scraping will be covered with all the common tools available on the market. You will learn how to handle wet and dry wood as well as longgrian and crossgrain wood. We make a vase or a pot, or just a beautiful hollow shape. After the workshop turning hollow forms and vases, you will of course take the workpieces home with you.
How and what?
How do you cut a piece of wood from a tree? Which type of wood is actually suitable for forming a hollow form? What gouges do you use and why? How do you sharpen the tools? What is a safe speed? Which wood do you use for what? What is a beautiful shape and why? At the end of the course you will take your work(s) home. Various hollowing tools are available on the market. You can find most of them in my workshop and of course you can use them all. We also finish the surface. Oil? Paint? color or not? Can I waterproof the form?
Woodturning experience is required for this course. If you sign up, you can turn wood between the centers and making a bowl is no problem for you. Experience with other woodwork is an advantage but not essential.
