It’s important to use the right tool for the right job. Bowl turning chisels have a distinct shape, and must be used correctly. And, they have to be sharp. Unlike other tools in your shop you won’t send lathe chisels out to be sharpened; you need to learn to sharpen them yourself. This portion of the class provides you with a variety of approaches for keeping your chisels ready to cut.

A dummy board/paper joint sandwich provides a great way to mount a bowl to a faceplate. In this session you’ll learn how to correctly create the paper joint, and how to fasten this assembly to your faceplate.
