3 Corner Bowl

You may have seen a number of three corner bowl videos on YouTube.  Some them are not bad, but a lot of them leave basic questions unanswered, and many provide no warnings about obvious hazzards.  Others simply keep the viewer wondering how to do what they just saw?  This demo is different!

Sure, I'll show you how I do it, but what I really want to do is to help you learn how you can do it... safely.  I will cover several important tips along the way that will go far toward success the first time you try it and every time thereafter.  


Belted Ball 

This is a hollow sphere with a splash of pizazz and matching stand.  I use my template process to create a thin wall hollow sphere and add a contrasting band near the center with a matching stand.


.50 Caliber Lidded Box   New! 

In this 1 1/2 hour demo I will show you a very simple way to create a small box with an overfit lid. In this instance I will make a toothpick box using a .50 Caliber BMG cartridge as a model. Once you understand the method, it is easily transferred to many other applications.


Carved & Textured Egg   New! 

In this 2 hour demo I will show you some methods for indexing small objects and marking indexed regions on larger ones. Using an egg or similar hollow form, I will carve a stylized spiral design in relief with rotary carving tools and texture the surface with rotary tools, wood burning and branding, or both.
