Advanced Bowl Turning

This course will continue the art, science, and techniques needed to turn a block of wood into functional sculpture. We will explore some rough-edge and green-wood spindle turning, wood curing, selection, and tool sharpening. You may never look at a pile of firewood the same again! It is recommended for each student to provide their own safety glasses or shield and earplugs.

Phil Armstrong is a furniture builder and has been a faculty member in the Technology Department at ASU for 27 years. He turned his first bowl more than 30 years ago and hasn't stopped. He works primarily with locally harvested hardwoods, normally destined for the fireplace, and he creates functional works of art. His latest obsessions are spalted maple and natural-edge bowls.

PLEASE NOTE: Most classes meet over multiple weeks. Registration for each class is open until the class fills, or until three days before the class begins. If you miss the registration for this semester we hope you will consider taking this class the next time it is offered.
