woodturning workshop, hollow forms
Woodturning is really fun to do. Especially when you have a good grasp of the techniques, it becomes more and more fun! In this woodturning workshop you learn to hollow, among others. In 2 days all the techniques of hollowing, cutting and scraping with all common chisels that are available on the market. You learn to deal with wet and dry wood and with end grain and side grain wood. We make a vase or pot or just a nice hollow shape.
How do you cut a piece of wood from the tree? What kind of wood is suitable for forming a hollow shape? Which chisels do you use and why? how do you sharpen your chisels? 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 take your work home of course. Various tools are available on the market for hollowing out pieces of wood. You will find most of those chisels in my workshop and of course you can use them. We also consider the finishing of the form. Oil? Lacquer? color or not? Can I make the mold watertight? For this course some experience in woodturning is required. Some experience with other woodworking is an advantage but not strictly necessary.
