Carl's Happy Woodturning Workshop Students"Tuesday’s Fall 2020 Woodturning Workshop" class in Carl Ford’s Studio in Poughkeepsie NY.

Create functional and artistic lathe turned objects in this 10 session class.

Students of every level are free to explore their own interests. Or I can suggest a path for students based on there interest in bowls, hollow forms, spindle turning, etc. Or we can do any mix of things.

I personally specialize in natural edge bowls, hollow forms and surface decorations. But, I have experience in and can teach, cut edge bowls, plates, platters, spindles, boxes, toys, lamps, etc. The only thing I don’t do is segmenting.

Topics include wood selection and preparation, tool choice, tool sharpening, tool use and control, spindle turning, bowl and vessel turning, hollow turning, finishing, etc.
