                  Intermediate Lathe Techniques:

                            Bowls and Platters


    In this class we will review the fundamentals of turning bowls and plates. The specific focus will be on turning a shallow bowl, which allows the practitioner to learn all of the techniques necessary to launch into a very wide variety of face-turning applications with minimal specialized tools. We will spend some initial time discussing design considerations and examining the workings of lathe chucks and face plates. The primary tools will be bowl gouges. Materials and tools will be provided. 

    Safety is an overarching objective, so please consider wearing short-sleeved shirts or sleeves that can be rolled up, and keep long hair up when possible. Class size is limited to allow each person the opportunity to focus on their work and minimize distractions while providing for group support and discussion. 


               Saturday February 29, 2020- 9AM-12:00 PM- $55 


    Instructor: Jeff Bower

    Jeff Bower is a hobbyist wood turner, living in Marlboro, with long connections to Brattleboro. His primary studio time is spent on turning bowls, platters, lidded boxes, and the occasional Dragon Egg, and in augmenting the wood grain aesthetic with resins, epoxies, metals and minerals. He has been turning routinely for the past 8 years. See some examples of Jeff’s work at www.orbitalworkshop.com .

                     Make Your Own Shaker Bench:        

                         Cutting Dovetails by Hand


    While building their own Shaker bench, students will focus on making the hand cut dovetail joint, one of the most admired joints in the field of furniture making. We will be making through dovetails as are shown in the picture of the bench. Half blind dovetails which are used in the the front part of a drawer will be discussed and if time permits, students may have a a chance to do some practice versions of these. Students will also learn to make a wedged mortise and tenon joint that will make up the cross support of the bench.

    This class is designed for beginning woodworkers or those who have not made these joints. All tools and materials will be supplied, but if participants have their own tools, please bring them. 

    Students will have their choice between working with poplar or pine. 

    March 14 and 15, 2020 - 9AM to 5 PM both days. 

                        $240 includes materials.
