Bowl turning class at Rockler hard at work - Dailey Woodworking
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.

Bowl turning class at Rockler

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to teach another woodturning class at Rockler in S. Portland, Maine. In order to be transparent, I should say that Rockler has hired me to be a turning instructor at the S. Portland Store. Yesterday's turning class was for beginners on bowl turning. Class sizes are capped at 4 students and that seems to be a good size. If someone had a question or seemed to be having a problem I could go right to them and they weren't held up waiting for me. I think everyone had a good time, I know that I did, and went home with some new skills to work with. 

If you are interested in classes and the class schedule you can check them out on Rockler's site by clicking here. Just scroll down until you get to the Classes and Workshops section. You can also sign up for classes by clicking on the links on the page. I believe my next classes are on June 17th - beginners bowl turning and June 24th - making a pepper mill. On July 1st I will be leading a class on making 3 piece ornaments. Be sure to sign up early because the classes fill up quite quickly.

Humpty after the fall - Dailey Woodworking

"Humpty after the fall"

Just like Humpty Dumpty I may have fallen down and hit my head. I have a new YouTube channel dedicated just to Dailey Woodworking. Over the next year, I hope to post videos that show the uniqueness of my products and some of those products being made. Right now I have two videos on the channel, one shows a variety of my products and the other is the turning of the inside of a bowl. You can check out the channel here. Please become a subscriber to the channel, as well.
