Learn how to make a natural edge burl bowl. I will show you how I take a rough piece of burl and create a lidded bowl with a balanced natural edge. Colored dyes can really add interest to a turning! Using multiple layers of color, I achieve a "tie-dye" effect on my Burl vessels.

Live Woodturning Demonstrations


Join me for a Live Interactive Woodturning Demonstration!


Only $10 US per person!


Watch me LIVE as I show you how to make a woodturning project.

I will be in my workshop in Erie Colorado, working with my tools and equipment.


You could win the piece that I make in the demonstration! There will be a raffle at the end.


You can view the demonstration on your computer, tablet, phone, or tv.

All you need is a screen, speaker, and internet connection.

If you have a camera and microphone, we can see and hear you, but it isn't necessary.


Connect to me using Zoom software. Once you pay for the session, you will be emailed a link to register with Zoom. You need to follow that link and register before the day of the demonstration. Zoom will then send you an email with the joining information.


Click HERE for a tutorial on using Zoom.


This is Live! You will see all of the steps to the project, and all of my mistakes and catches!


This is Interactive, too! You can ask questions during the demonstration,

at the break, and afterwards.

Turners of every skill level will learn tips and get inspiration.


Get a Virtual Tour of my workshop! I have a professional shop where I do woodworking, metalworking, and woodturning.


I have prepared notes and visuals for you to download for each topic.


The Zoom session will start 1 hour before the Demonstration start time.

That will give you time to connect, and we can chat with each other before start time.

I will guide you through the controls on Zoom to maximize your experience of the meeting.


The total time for the demonstration is just over 2 hours.


Our MC will be Cynthia Carden Gibson


Please be aware! Stuff happens sometimes. If anything goes wrong, such as internet or power failure, or if you are unable to attend, I will save a seat for you at a future Demonstration.
