The Enchanted WoodTrurners of Santa Fe NM

August 2019 Square Bowls and Milk Paint


Monday- 6PM- August 13, 2018  Enchanted Woodturners Meeting

We will meet at Santa Fe High School Woodworking Shop, see driving & parking diagram attached, and look at the high school’s location on Google Satellite to see it better. 

Subject:  Making a square bowl with a textured rim and finished with milk paint. 

Presenter:  Stephen (Steve) LeGrue

Steve will start with a square piece of  6” x 6” x 8/4 maple and turn a square bowl with a thin, wide rim. He will discuss considerations of mounting and turning wood that will end up being 90% turned air.  Then Steve will mount the piece in the Talon chuck and finish the top. He will use a Micro-Pro Mastercarver to show several textures that can be added to the rim. Finally Steve will demonstrate how milk paint can add visual interest to the piece.
