On October 21, 2005 the Woodcraft store in Austin hosted David Marks again, this time for a class on bowl turning.
David spent a very long day taking 16 students through wood prep, sharpening, roughing and finishing a bowl. Woodcraft provided a loaner midi-lathe for each student and a block of wood was included in the price of the class. I lucked into a really nice piece of mahogany. Now you should know that I'm not crazy about turning - the idea of holding a sharp tool into a fast spinning piece of wood is a recipe for disaster in my eyes... but I couldn't pass up the chance to take another class from David. Here is a shot of the start of the class, then David showing us a metallized vase and ebony rimmed bowl..
