A 'sushi tray' is a shallow rectangular bowl, which could have many purposes such as serving appetizers or as a jewelry caddy. Turning a rectangular tray is a great skill builder and opens possibilities for many interesting turning projects. You will learn to 'turn air', as they say in the turning world. The class also should help you get a more uniform thickness in your bowl turning. This class is best for turners who have successfully turned round bowls and platters and are looking for something new to try. 

Equipment and supply needs for the class will be minimal (mainly a bowl gouge), and will be detailed in an email to participants.
