Turning demonstration by professional woodturner Jason Clark.

Jason is a pro turner based out of Chicago   We are bringing Jason here for  Friday & Sunday classes with a Saturday Demo.

Multi-axis with a twist, Unconventional hollowing – Turning the Torus, Return of Saturn.  In the morning session attendees will see a short presentation of some of my work as well as a preview of the day’s projects.  I will start with some simpler multi axis spindles  to explain the basic approach to multi axis turning before moving on to the creation of a multi-axis lidded box turned so that the outside of box has 3 distinct faces that twist 120 degrees along the length of the box.  Next I will talk about and demonstrate the process of turning a Torus shaped hollow form covering an unconventional approach to hollowing as well as methods for reverse chucking including a unique double walled vacuum drum. 


The remainder of the session will be focused on Saturn bowI. I will turn a simple bowl with a wide thin rim and use the ultra-thin parting tool to cut the rim in such a way that is free from the bowl and is able to rotate.  This bowl will then be held in a way so that the wide rim of the bowl can be offset using simple home-made jigs in order to create rings that are interactive.
