EXPLORING BURLS. Join Bob Puetz for an exploration of Burls. What they are, how to cut and prep them, and how to turn them into beautiful keepsakes.
Learn the ins and outs of burl turning. Don’t have a burl??? Bob will be providing small burls for everyone or you can bring your own so Bob can recommend how to cut and turn it.
Recommended tools: Bowl gouge, parting tool, large round nose scraper or negative rake scraper if you have one. Bob will be demonstrating with Carbide Hunter Tools so bring your Hunter tools if you have them. We have Hunter Tools available also so you can try them out.

Bob will tell us about Burl Types, Layout, Cutting Methods, and Mounting options as you make a Natural Edge Burl Bowl.

Come join in and discover Burls.
