Salad Bowl and Serving Set (Workshop)

Instructor: Jim Wallace

Wood Salad Bowl SetThis three-day workshop will explore making a salad bowl and salad serving set from green wood.  Beginning with a freshly cut log we will learn about orientation, splitting, and riving as well as using a band saw to obtain our turning blanks.  There will be discussion about different methods of making bowls from green wood.  We will experiment with different textures on the outside of the bowl and with different food safe finishing options.  The serving set will be made with handles turned on the lathe: the bowl of the spoon and the fork will be carved.  Crafts Center tools will be available for students to use.  You are welcome to bring your favorite bowl gouge and/or carving and spindle turning tools.

If you choose to bring your own tools, these are the tools we will be using most:  bowl gouge (3/8” is ideal), spindle roughing out gouge, skew chisel,  and #9 x 13mm carving gouge.
