Back to Basics turning with Carl Jacobson

Stingray Box class with Carl Jacobson.

Carl says this is a good challenging project!  In this class we’ll make a winged lidded box that looks like a stingray.

Participants bring: 6″ x 6″ x 4″ turning blanks (Carl used Maple and Walnut but whatever you have is good).

Tools: Basic set of tools ether gouge or carbide. (Carl will bring a few tools for cutting off the extra wings that everyone can use.)



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. Almost eight years later, he has over 85 thousand YouTube subscribers.

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:
