Sep 24th – Remote Demonstration – Turn a Pumpkin Box

September 24, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Please join me to see how I “Turn an Pumpkin Box”. I’ll also show some carving and coloring on this piece.

Ask questions live, in real time, just like you were right next to me. This is a Zoom meeting.

This project creates a small hollow form with a lid. The turning will take place in real time from one piece of timber. This will be an end grain turning. It can be done cross grain but I have some end grain material to use for this project. The form of the box is sometimes tricky to get it to look right. I will use the basic indexing on my lathe to layout some line for carving. I will complete some carving live but not all of it. I will show how I go about shaping the lid in preparation for more carving. Finally I will start the coloring process the box and the lid. This will happen only partially during the actual live demo. But I will go through my methods to get the look I have achieved.

Topic: Turn an Pumpkin Box
Time: Saturday September 24, 2022 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
