Carl says this is a fun class to work on hollowing with a special twist in the final project.  “No natural void? No problem! This piece didn't have a void so I made my own.”

  • Tools need basic set of turning tools and a hollowing tool.




Carl Jacobson enjoys sharing his woodworking and wood turning passion to inspire others. Carl and his wife have a mobile shop traveling the country promoting the craft of woodworking, and has weekly how-to-videos on The WoodShop.TV.

Carl Jacobson started woodworking with his grandfather as a young boy in Oregon. He continued woodworking through high school, and started wood turning after seeing a turned project in a friend's shop. Shortly after YouTube started, he was looking for a how-to video for duck calls. With no results he decided to make his own video. He is now turning full time and producing his own videos.

Many intricate shapes and designs can be made by turning wood. Some of Carl’s fondest memories are working with his grandfather in his wood shop.  Being able to share his passion for wood turning with others ties it all together.   Carl’s website is:
