On April 7, 2018 the Prescott Area Woodturners will welcome Eric Lofstrom for an All-Day Demonstration of Technique-Building Treasures: Turning Spindle, Endgrain & Facegrain (Spinning Tops, Endgrain Bowl/Box, Square-Rim Bowl, Rice Bowl)
During this all-day demonstration, attendees will learn the methods Lofstrom uses to turn several projects, ranging from very simple to advanced turning and an exploration of embellishing techniques. The morning will focus on showing you fundamental spindle and endgrain turning techniques he uses to turn spinning tops and endgrain bowls/boxes. After lunch, he will showcase techniques he uses in turning a square-winged bowl, then complete the day with turning a small facegrain oriented rice bowl. All projects will focus on tool control, form, and exploring embellishments. The day’s turning will showcase several tools; skew, bowl gouges, scrapers, chucking methods, embellishing tools, etc. All skills and projects turned during this day’s demo are worth adding to every turner’s toolbox of techniques!
