Back to Back Bowl Turning with Dan Douthart
Dan did his best impersonation of Emeril Lagasse with a high energy presentation on rough turning green wood. Dan completed part 1 (of a 2 part) class on bowl turning. He came prepared with small green logs that had been prepped into various phases of rough turning a bowl. He began with how to recognize a suitable log to turn into a bowl. He then sliced off the ends to get to fresh material, split it end-to-end, and cut a flat spot to facilitate chucking. He continued with the various operations until he completed a rough turned bowl suitable for storing away to slowly dry before finish turning. Part 2 (next week) will presume that the rough turned piece has been shop drying for several months and will be finish turned.
