Bowl Maker (Ashland High School)
Demonstration of Turning a Bowl
Season 2, Episode 3
Wesley started taking a class of carpentry skills in his freshman year, the fall of 2006. His teacher, Mr. Weston, introduced him to some beginning wood turning principles and he instantly took a liking to turning; he really enjoyed the immediate results. Hands on learning fits his learning style, so he enrolled in an advanced woodworking class in the fall of 2007. Wesley enjoys the creative opportunities of wood turning, and particularly enjoys seeing a rough piece of lumber become a finished piece of art.
