First Ornament Class at Rockler 0
Yesterday I taught another class at Rockler in South Portland, Maine. The class was about turning a 3 piece ornament. I had one participant in the class, Bill. In the picture above you can see Bill shaping out the center globe of his ornament. The globe would then be hollowed out using tools from two different hollowing sets. We used the micro hollowing set and the ornamental hollowing set from Sorby. Next came the turning of the bottom icicle finial and the top button finial. I think his three piece ornament came out fantastic.
Yesterday's bowl turning class at Rockler 0
Yesterday I had the opportunity to teach my second bowl turning class at Rockler in S. Portland, Maine. Once again I had a great time teaching the class. Lisa, Greg, Brian and George all left with a finished bowl. They had each turned a pleasing shape on the bowl using Sorby woodturning tools and finished them up with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish. The finished bowls were about 2 inches tall by 6 inches wide. Some, but not all, used the Sorby spiralling tool to put a ring of texture around the outside of their bowl.
