Allen Jensen - Turning a Bowl, From the Tree to the Table

I will show you the process I use to convert locally harvested urban timbers into beautiful salad bowls. Using the wood the right way will ensure the bowl will dry correctly and withstand daily use. I will cover the process from selecting and harvesting the wood, rough turning the blank, Drying, remounting and returning the dry bowl, Sanding, reverse chucking methods, and food safe finishing techniques. Along the way I will cover efficient use of the bowl gouge to remove material quickly, and then cover techniques for clean cutting to reduce sanding. This is a fast paced but in depth demo for anyone interested in turning bowls.
