I just completed guiding students in my 2.25 day wood turning class at the North House Folk School and my Hovland shop. My three students (Joe, Buddy, and Rod) did a great job turning bark edged bowls from cherry, honey locust, cherry burl, sugar maple burl, black walnut, and box elder. We also worked on sharpening, wood drying, stabilizing, and sanding techniques. We all had a great time and I think the students learned a lot and left really motivated to turn more challenging bowls. The following images show the students hard at work and displaying their finished bowls.
