What’s this Tree to Bowl Green Wood eCourse Worth?

What is it worth to you to be able to make your own bowl blanks confidently?

Let’s look at typical turning education options:

If you have attended a national or regional Woodturning Symposium, you know how expensive that can be. When you add up the cost of attendance, hotel, travel, and meals, you can easily exceed $ 1,500 for just a four-day event. And you have only your notes when you leave.

If you attend a woodturner’s hands-on class locally, you might spend $500-$750 for a weekend workshop, plus travel and lodging. Again, you take away only the notes you make and what you can recall afterward.

Some woodturning clubs have talented turners who come visit and do full-day demos for around $50-$100. These demos usually only cover small aspects of making bowl blanks and you only have your notes afterward.

I want to make this Tree to Bowl Green Wood Understanding eCourse affordable and accessible for as many people as possible. And that is why I’ve priced this eCourse class so affordably.

I also want this to be YOUR Best, Go-To Resource to learn everything you need to understand green wood, better than anything else anywhere.

Here’s What They Are Saying

“I have always been hesitant to pay for online courses since I am more of a hands-on learner. However, I am very happy I chose to do this one. Your course is top-notch!” — Jim Grieco

I recently completed your sharpening course. What a magnificent job you did.  Before this course, I really stayed away from sharpening, after revisiting several sessions, I am now very comfortable sharpening my gouges and scrapers.  Over the years I must have collected at least 6 bowl gouges, all of them in deplorable condition.  They are now textbook sharp, 3 of them with the 55 degree bevel.  Soon I will be starting a project and am expecting a tremendous improvement.  It is great to now have the confidence to sharpen as often as is necessary.  In addition, I also picked up the safety information you provided and am putting it into practice.

In the near future I will signing up for your bowl turning class.

Thank you for the excellent class.

Kent, Your skill at turning bowls is phenomenal but your ability to put together these videos so they are so helpful and easy to understand is amazing.  On top of that you are terrific with all the aspects of making the videos!  Best $$$ I ever spent getting this eClass. — Thank you, Jeff

Hi Kent,

Only started turning this year so total new to all aspects. Tried kiln dry wood very dusty and lots of splits so gave that up. Tried barn dried and purchased blank. This was very expensive and not as good an experience as I thought it would be. Due mainly to blanks and timber not being as advertised.
Have a friend who is a tree surgeon so approached him and for £10 ended up with a boot full of wood 12 inch diameter and 14 inches long. After unloading this looking at it and thinking. How do I cut this into pieces I can use . Can I turn wood this wet. How can I dry out etc.
Purchased a chain saw ( Not as easy to use as I thought) and trying various ways of cutting.

Was about to give up when I remembered seeing a few of your vids and purchasing the how to sharpen different chisels that was very good so decided to see if you had anything that would help.

Saw your log to bowl decide to see if it was a help and finally I am now a lot more confident about cutting drying and using fresh cut timber. Now I need to try different species to see the difference.
Thank you for a very informative course

Regards Brian

As a German speaking beginner, I am very much impressed with the way Kent is explaining everything in details! It seems he was or is a teacher! Best wood turning videos I have seen so far! Keep on doing!👍 — Herbert

Your informative and highly educational videos are excellent, plus you are a natural teacher. You have inspired me, at 78yo, to explore turning opportunities in my area and get involved in wood turning. — Thanks, Gary T

As a brand new wood turner, I have gained so much from each of your videos I have watched.  I love the details and the way you explain the “how” and the “why” on each session.  Thank you, Kent for all you are doing to advance the art of wood turning.— Gary J

  1. Kent. Thank you for the “log to bowl” course. It added many new facets to my turning insights. If time permits in the future, perhaps you could merge some of the short videos into fewer longer presentations, with some additional shop-based video examples woven in. Thanks for building this excellent resource.

    1. Austin,
      Thank you, and I’m glad you enjoyed the course.
      I’ll see what i can do for longer videos.
      All the best to you and Happy Turning!

  2. Hello Kent, Very impressive site. Your passion is clear. Do you have a bundle package if I would like to purchase all of your courses at once vs buying all 3 separately?

    1. Hello Kyle,
      Thank you for writing and sharing your kind words!
      Good question. I do not have a bundle, as each course is deeply discounted already.
      All the best to you, and Happy Turning!

  3. I had an old boxelder blow down. I knew I should do something about curing it as it was green. There is a liquid cure I found and it worked well. Turning seemed pretty easy since it was fairly fresh. I should check the course later, as right now I’m enjoying the course on sharpening.

    1. Jimmy,
      Thank you for writing and sharing!
      Box elder, which I’ve learned is also called Manitoba Maple, can be an amazing species to turn. It sounds like you are well on your way to making some beautiful pieces.
      All the best to you, and Happy Turning!

  4. It does not but we do cover core shaping and sharpening issues that will effect your process on any system. You will be able to adapt what you learn to your system. All the best to you and Happy Turning!
