Three Minute Bowl

Ben Strano at Fine Woodworking just posted a video condensing my FWW bowlcarving video into three minutes, so if you want it in a nutshell here it is:

Less than two months until the Fine Woodworking Live event in Southbridge, Mass.  I’ll have the axe and adze swinging in a couple demonstrations, and I’ll probably have a chance to throw the drawknife in there as well.  But I’ll start off assisting Peter Follansbee in a hands-on spoon carving class.  I’m really looking forward to catching up with Peter again.  They don’t make ’em any better.  If you haven’t seen his blog post today featuring a beautiful video by Jögge Sundqvist, check it out here.  Pure poetic inspiration as only Jögge can deliver.

They’ll be together again at Greenwood Fest in June.

    LOVE your work. Extreme quality. Wish to be able to learn with you one day! Will you be teaching at the FW event or “just” demonstration ? I can not attend the Greenwood Festival this year. Will be at Heartwood School at the same time.

      Thanks. I’ll be assisting Peter Follansbee in his one-day spoon carving class on Friday of the event, then a 1 1/2 hour presentation/demonstration Saturday and a repeat on Sunday. I’m still considering specifically what aspects of bowl carving make the most sense to focus on during the time, but it won’t be a hands-on class for the attendees; so not like a class where each student works on his/her own bowl. However, I will be essentially teaching through demonstrating, answering questions, and helping anybody out however I can. My first time for this event, so that’s at least my understanding. Hope to get together with you one way or another someday.

        Ok. So i might as well try to get you another time for a real hands on class. I do like Peter a lot! Met him at LN event 2017. Great teacher!

    I really appreciate your Fine Woodworking series on Bowl Carving. I’ve watched your YouTube videos at least a dozen times each, but this FWW series helped to fill in the details in an extremely informative way.

  4. They FWW video series has been amazing. I still have two episodes to go but I’m loving it. Great drawing of Peter and Jögge as well. Peter has a Jerry Garcia look to him that I’m sure he’d appreciate.


    • Dave Fisher says:

      Thanks, Shawn. Jeff and Ben did a great job with the video. Peter would probably like the Jerry Garcia connection. If anyone draws me it would be great if it looked a little more like, say, Daniel Craig.

    Since I enrolled for the Friday spoon carving class with Peter at FWWL next month, I’m now even more anxious to have the opportunity to learn from you both. I haven’t yet received the adze I ordered several months ago so I look forward to seeing your demo’s in person while waiting to make my own chips. That whole weekend will be a first of its type for me but I’m confident it will be worth the drive.

    Such a lovely video, Dave. Can’t wait to see the whole shebang. And glad you are working with Peter on the course in MA. I won’t be able to attend, sadly. I am sure it will be great.
