You will learn how to prepare the wood, rough out a bowl before drying, and select the most appropriate equipment for turning. Dick demonstrates the proper use of bowl gouges, scrapers, and other tools needed for each step. Sanding and finishing techniques are covered as well. Finally, the gallery includes a wonderful selection of bowls in different woods and styles to inspire your ongoing work.
