    Hi Paul,
    My school is in Santa Rosa 1 hour north of San Francisco. I have two classes on woodturning coming up in September 2013. Please check out my website which is posted at the end of this video. Go to the Classes section and you can read about my bowl turning class and my box turning class. Feel free to contact me at david@djmarks.com with any questions you might have. Thanks,
    David Marks

    who is this guy?

  14. Jake Enns says:

    The lathe is actually one of the safest tools in the shop, in my experience. With proper face protection, and short sleeves, there is not much you can do to really hurt yourself, but a lot you can do to grab your attention with a catch, It is easy to destroy wood though.

  15. Charles Nicholls says:

    Hey, I liked the video, did you ever get the bowl finished and did you make a video of it?

  16. Charles Nicholls says:

    That cone center can be a pain and is usually caused by the bowl gouge coming to center. The best way I have found to remove it is with either a flat or round nose scraper, simply run the scraper from the outside in just like you would use the bowl gouge and it should make short work of the cone. Good luck with your turning.

  17. paul schuetz says:

    where is this school at i live in northern california and would love to learn more about turning wood i have been turning for almost a year and would like to learn some better techniques

  18. letslipthedogs says:

    Brother, I used to have this same problem. Use a flat scraper. I have used 1 in and 1/2 in scrapers in the past. Be cautious though. Scrapers should be sharp for finish work so ease into the cut otherwise you can gig the hell out of your wood very close to your chuck recess. I have punched right thru the bottom before because I wasn’t paying attention to that

  19. kenny474 says:

    I’d love to know what you saw as “advanced”? I saw some very, very basic techniques, and tools so basic I was surprised David even included them in a video. (Easy Wood Tools are about as basic and simple as they come and require very little actual technique in use)

    I’m a rather experienced turner, making most of my income from woodturning, with a bit more coming from flat-work (furniture), so I can usually spot anything inherently dangerous, and nothing here stands out as advanced or dangerous.

  20. kenny474 says:

    Straight wings on gouges create catches. You want a really nice grind? Learn JoHannes Michelsen’s grind. Even the Ellsworth is better than a flat-winged grind.

  21. winsicksick says:

    I really miss tour TV apperencances I watched them all over and over and always learned something new

  22. An Erect Donkey says:

    I like piece with the cough pot leaves cough cough on it looks like it could be a bong if you added a stem

  23. tbndeereman75 says:

    Lower your tool rest, and use a shear cut, and it will come off. If not, use a scraper.

  24. tbndeereman75 says:

    It was just some of the things like the drill bit, and using the side of a gouge that can be a hazard if you havnt done a lot of turning. It all depends of how good a control you have.

  25. The Wood Whisperer says:

    I am definitely not an experienced turner, but I am sure someone here can give you some good advice as to the best way to tackle this. I usually just use my bowl gouge to carefully remove the material to flatten the inside bottom of the bowl. Sometimes I’ll even use a bowl scraper if I’m feeling a little gun shy.
