Adding Relief Carving to Your Woodturnings
We will be using rotary power carvers for this all day hands-on session.  I will take you, step by step, through the process I use to create my “leaf wrapped” vessels. I will go over why I prefer a micro-motor for what I do, what burrs I use for each step and how and what uses I have for the burrs I modify. You don’t need any previous experience with power carving, just a desire to learn the techniques.
