I will turn a honey dipper and a snowman Christmas ornament.  Faceplate Turning: We will discuss the deep fluted bowl gouge, faceplates and chucks along with wood selection, grain orientation and chucking methods.  I will demonstrate how to turn a simple bowl and shallow plate.  All supplies included.  Students will create their own projects during the workshop.
