Course: TRN100A18 Turning with Jimmy Clewes

Jimmy Clewes will be teaching a three day turning class. 

The December class sould out quickly se we are having Jimmy back again

Platter including Design and Ergonomics also

Probably my favorite turning to make!

We discuss ergonomics, shape and form. The bowl gouge, how it’s sharpened and its uses.

The draw cut, push cut, micro bevel, and shear cut also the wing angle and why I like mine a certain way.

The colouring adds a real aesthetic quality to the piece, you will either like it or hate it! , but done well and on the right piece of wood can look awesome

Long Stemmed Goblet

This piece is interesting as it shows the technique of hollowing end grain way out from the Chuck.

Care must be taken as to not catch so tool position is vital, as is choice of tool.

The long delicate tapered stem adds fineness to the piece and shows that with good tool control and technique, it’s not that difficult to do.

Choosing straight grained wood will also help with the first ones.

Back to Basics Bowl Turning showing Tool and process Technique

I explain and show you how I turn a bowl.

I will show you a very simple way of how to get a curve every time! , remember it’s hard to refine a cure unless you have a curve in the first place!

My method of hollowing seems logical to me but very few people use it.

Again all will be explained in the demo, but I am sure you will learn something for even the seasoned bowl turners.
