Bowl Turning at Barb's Barn

Click on thumbnail for full size image

It might almost be Spring but there was snow on the ground before the Saturday session of the Bowl Turning hands-on class

Each day started with a clean barn as the participants start getting setup

Barb and Jake getting things started at the Saturday session

Barb gets things started on the right foot with the directions around the place

John Lunney was the instructor for both the Friday and Saturday sessions

John started the sessions with some explanations of how he processes his bowl blanks

He shows how he harvests them from the tree, depending on the desired results

John shows how he marks his centers and trims the blanks round

A poster John used to explain the classic shapes and how to plan your turning

After the explanations, John mounts a blank and demonstrates the entire process beginning to end

At various points, everyone was encouraged to come closer to get a better view

Once the bowl was done, John cuts it in half to see how well it was executed

After the lecture and demo, everyone gets started on their own bowl

At straight up noon, Jim Hilburger sounds the lunch whistle

Per the Hilburger rule, every class has to take a break at noon and have a bit of lunch

The Saturday group, like the Friday group, takes a break at noon to eat and relax a bit
