Turning Archive 2008
>Went really well, I thought.
I started with just an overview of the equipment and thier operations. Then an overview of nomenclature.
Then we talked about safety, and how important that is. My wife is a Certified Hand Therapist!
When we finally got to making sawdust, I started him on Spindle Turning, just a 2x2x12 block of walnut. Roughed to a cylinder, then we cut some coves, first with a small scraper, then tried a little gouge.
On to faceplate work. Chucked a small block and had him turn a little bowl, and we were able to get it finished and signed!
4 hr session, $160.00
All in all, a good gig, but strangely I was bored to tears. Maybe I'm just not cut out for it.
