Click on thumbnail for full size image

On Saturday morning, it was another of the famous Barb's Barn sessions

Everyone starts arriving to get set for the 9am start

The instructor was Kurt Hertzog

The day was dedicated to learning/reinforcing the fundamentals

Included topics were safety, equipment, tools, ABCs, sharpening, stance, sight picture, helpful tips, and more

The main purpose was demonstrating good technique and then having everyone practice it

Kurt explains the effects of grain orientation

Demonstrating a tip about making your tool rest smooth and ding-free

Kurt uses a bowl to demonstrate cutting direction to take advantage of the support of the underlying grain

Here he shows how difficult a "simple turned egg" can be and why it's a very good practice exercise

After 2 hours of demo and lecture, the balance of the day was set aside to everyone to practice

Gary Jones practices his roughing gouge and making the smoothest, most uniform cylinder

Barb lends a hand to Bob Gordon

Kurt works with Ann Raby on some heavy reshaping of one of her tools

The group takes a break to enjoy lunch together

We might be drinking diet soda but that's Barb's famous Carrot Cake for dessert
