Class: Turning Wooden Eggs – Bruce Claiborne – March 10,2024

Eggs have historically been a symbol of hope and new life.  For many, they just feel amazing in your hand and allow the enjoyment of the wood’s features from all angles.

The class will use a spindle roughing gouge, spindle gouge, and negative-rake scraper, an egg pattern jig, and a four-jaw chuck.  Wood for two eggs and two jam chucks will be provided.  Participants will turn the basic egg shape with the spindle held in a four-jaw chuck and complete the eggs after creating their own jam chuck.

If time permits, we will talk about turning eggs with a skew, do a brief demonstration and practice.

Class runs from 9am to 4pm with a one-hour break for lunch at noon.  Setup is at 8am come early to help setup if you can.
