Arrowmont Class with Trent

Trent will be teaching a week long class at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts July 11-17.  There are still spaces available to take advantage of this week long learning opportunity.  Class info is below:

Vessels and Surfaces

Imagine taking a hollow form that you just turned, looking at the grain and form of the piece to help guide the manipulation of the exterior surface then, making so much more than a standard turning.  Learn to turn hollow vessels of all shapes and sizes then use an extensive array of surface embellishment techniques such as: carving, burning, sandblasting, coloring and more to make  that vessel more than just a hollow form. Limited only by your imagination surprise yourself and take your turning skill and creativity to a new level.

I’ve taught at Arrowmont many times and it is a wonderful learning environment with top quality equipment.  Come to Tennessee this summer  to have fun and take your turning to a new level.

For all inquiries and to register contact Arrowmont at www.arrowmont.org or 865-436-5860.

Happy Turning,

Deluxe Pneumatic Carving Stand now available!

Well it has been a long road to get this beauty into production but it is finally here.

My daughter Kailee wrote up a nice description of how it works and I thought it would be nice to include it here:

The Deluxe Pneumatic carving stand is an easy and fun way to carve on your woodturning pieces. The nice thing about it is it moves in all directions so that you can carve in any position that is comfortable for you.  All you have to do is hook it up to an air compressor, then push the petal down for the ball to move. Put it in the spot you want it let the petal go  and there you go you can have an easy and fun way to carve. The adapters that fit this carving stand are: 1×8 tpi, 1 1/4×8 tpi and M33x 3.5. Which fit most chucks on most lathes. This carving stand comes with a bench mount so it is easy for you to mount in your shop.

To learn more about this awesome device visit the Products link on my website.  The cost for the complete stand is $495 USD

As always Happy Turning and Carving
