Kim and Dean Hutchins
Surface Enhancements & Piercing
We will explore a number of surface enhancement techniques including carving, texturing, burning, and coloring using the natural grain patterns of the wood. We will also demonstrate our piercing techniques and demonstrate the technique used to turn a pieced thin enough for piercing (typically less than 1/8”). As part of the demonstration a number of rotary tools, reciprocating carvers, and high-speed pneumatic carvers will be utilized and discussed. Through surface techniques, ordinary works and plain hardwoods can be enhanced and those little mishaps can be covered or converted into interesting features. With just a few simple techniques and a little practice, any turner will be able to add these techniques to the their list of options when finishing a turning. A sampling of our work can be found on our site http://woodturninginc.com.
Location: Hayesville High School
