The Seal & Ball – With Theo the Woodturner – Australia
In this session, Theo shares with us how to turn one of his advanced projects “The Seal with Ball”.
This is an artistic piece incorporating a sphere ‘and’ eccentric turning, all from a single piece of timber.
Theo advances on his sphere turning sessions by first turning the ball on centre, using the shadow technique, and then the piece is ‘off-set’ at the base using different centres to form each side of the seal.
Theo will show how the shape is created on one side and then tapered to the form the other!! This is not one to be missed!!
In this session, Theo Covers:
• Sphere turning using a shadow and a back board.
• Secure mounting techniques for eccentric turning.
• Turning in air and caressing the bevel.
• The difference between slicing and cutting the wood.
• Preventing ‘knuckle knocks’ when sanding.
