N-Loop Celtic Knots
Celtic knots can be used in a variety of projects but they must be properly prepared to yield a precise knot. Learn a process wherein any number of loops can be precisely formed for turning.

This demonstration consists of a slide discussion of the principles required for a successful Celtic knot with any number of loops.

Then we will prepare a turning blank using the table saw for spindle oriented projects.

Following the table saw demonstrations, we will elevate the process to use a band saw which is required for larger diameter projects.

Mountain Bowls In this demo I expand upon the decorative utility bowl demo and show a technique that I used to expand the possibilities of a utility piece becoming more decorative. Drawing inspiration from my environment (I live in Colorado and the mountains are very prominent) I came up with this interpretation. We go through the making of the bowl, beading the bowl, laying out and carving the mountain ranges. Also touching on wood prep, tool sharpening, finishing and a myriad of other possibilities.
