Learn the different stages of wood turning in this hands-on workshop offered at the Studios Woodshop where you will learn to create a wooden bowl. Students will learn how to use a bandsaw to cut out the general shape and size of a bowl, then use a lathe to turn the wood until the edges are smooth and the curvature is just as desired. Students will also seal their bowl with a simple food-safe finish.
