Woodturning: Open Bowls To Hollow Forms

June 24, 2018 – June 30, 2018

David Ellsworth

This workshop emphasizes making open bowls and hollow forms. Working with fresh-cut green logs, students will learn the location of their bowls and vessels within the logs, and process them on the lathe using a versatile “Signature” gouge and various hollowing tools. Class topics include object and tool design, attaching devices, sanding and finishing, measuring wall thickness, and working with green wood…and other student suggestions during five exciting days of making shavings. Open to all skill levels.


David Ellsworth operates his own private school of woodturning at his studio in Buck’s County, Pennsylvania. He has become known as one of the premier designers of hollow wooden vessel forms. Ellsworth is a fellow and former trustee of the American Craft Council and received the prestigious Master of the Medium award in wood. He is the recipient of the Lifetime Membership Award from the American Association of Woodturners.
