A Day in My “Winter 2018 Studio Class”

Tom, Scott & Steve with Finished Pieces Photo: Tom, Scott & Steve with Finished Pieces

Here are 3 students with the pieces they made in my class on Thursday 3/22/2018.

Left to right. Tom, Scott, and Steve.

They were taking my "2018 Winter Woodturning Workshop" class in my Studio in Poughkeepsie NY.

Scott was a new student. Scott very quickly became a very good turner.

Tom and Steve are both very good turners. They have taken the same class over and over a couple of times. We just keep doing more and more complex things. They enjoy coming to the class for fun and camaraderie.

Tom made a Vase out of Ambrosia Maple. The shape was from a photo I took in Portugal of some pottery.

Scott made a "Natural-Edge Vase" from page 101 of Mark Baker's "Weekend Woodturning Projects" book.

Steve made a "Burr Oak Bowl" in Maple (not Burr Oak) from page 131 of John Hunnex's "Woodturning Forms & Materials" book.

Future Classes

The Fall 2018 version of my "Woodturning Workshop" class in my studio is already full. I have 2 returning students and 1 new student.

The Fall 2018 version of my "Woodturning Workshop" class at the Brookfield Craft Center in Brookfield CT has space available. I have 2 returning students already signed up. The class is limited to 6 students.

I took a couple of action shots for each student. I am just going to present them with no commentary.

I was too busy teaching to take more photos.

Tom is using my Hollowing Rig. For more info click here.

Note: I have 2 of these Hollowing Rigs. Thus 2 out of 3 students in each class can use my Hollowing Rig. I plan to getting a 3rd Hollowing Rig, if I run into a real need for it.

I got distracted, talking to other students, etc. and forgot to take more photos of Steve. Sorry Steve.

  1. Remember, the camera adds at least 20lbs. Couldn’t possibly be the buregers, fries or whiskey.
    The classes, instructor, fellow students and equipment are all first class.

  2. seeing those pictures started me thinking about the fall class, can’t wait to get started. I really look forward
    to your class each week because we have fun while learning and improving.
