Learn to turn a bowl from green wood

In this class you will learn to turn a bowl from freshly cut (green) wood. The class will consist of two sessions.  In the first session, you will earn how to chainsaw a bowl blank from freshly cut wood, how to mount the blank on the lathe, and how and to rough-turn a bowl from your blank.  In the second session, you will learn how to re-turn your bowl once it is fully dry and has finished warping, and how to sand and apply finish to your bowl. It takes about 6 months to dry a green wood bowl. Each session will take about 4 hours, though these times can vary (more or less) depending upon the size of the bowl and the proficiency of the turner. I charge $50 an hour for these sessions.
