Are any of our expert wood turners available to teach a class in how to safely cut and prepare logs as bowl blanks?
This would ideally show how to use a sled, and how to clean the bandsaw blade if sap gets on it so it cuts cleanly, doesn’t shred wood, and keeps the blade useable. Students should all get hands-on experience, and a blank to take home with them.
@skeeter kindly cleaned up a mess on the Laguna bandsaw from someone who was most likely unfamiliar with the right way to prep blanks.
If ever a class deserved an honorarium for preventing accidents and tool damage, it’s this one.
