1-02 What This Course Includes

In this course, we will go over everything you need to know about the bowl gouge, its history, which ones are best to start with, what grinds do what, and why you might want more than one. Scroll down the list of lesson topics, and you’ll see we WILL cover everything you need to know about the bowl gouge.

We will also be doing exercises at various stages. Of course, these are voluntary, but you will quickly see the benefits.

Along the way, you can ask questions through posted comments, and I will reply. These questions and answers will add to the depth of information as the course progresses.

What’s not included in this course is tool shaping, tool sharpening, the whole bowl turning process, and processing wood for bowl turning. All of these topics are covered in full, extensive detail in other courses. Check them out here. I will share some aspects of tool shaping, sharpening, and bowl turning in this course, but we will only partially cover these topics as they relate to using the bowl gouge.

This course is designed to give you the knowledge, skills, and exercises to grow your confidence, apply proven techniques, and take you all the way to bowl gouge mastery.

Kent – Luckily, I have already taken all of your other courses so if there is a time when I need more info on a certain subject as we go, like sharpening for example, I can refer back to that module in that course and refresh myself. For all others, Kent’s other courses are a great start if you are fairly new to wood turning. Heck, they are good if you have been turning a while as he may have new perspectives and a fresh way of looking at things. I’m anxious to start this course. Have a good one…Brad
