We have packed this newsletter full of a lot of hopefully relevant information. Please take your time, and enjoy its content.

It is not always the easiest thing to do, as other life commitments get in the way, but I have been finding a little bit more time to spend in the shop, playing with new ideas. A lot of my ideas are just that - ideas. I am not sure where they are going to lead me, but the exploration and experimentation in my opinion is one of the most enjoyable parts of turning.  I have even had fun collaborating with my daughter Kailee. She has been using glued up books as a medium for awhile and glued up a blank for me to play around with. We discussed possibilities, made a couple pieces, and now have more ideas to try together. Not everything turns out as you had hoped, but I think if it did - I wouldn't be interested in exploring it any further. So, I challenge you to make time to just go explore and experiment. 

Happy Making, 


I have been doing some large scale, sculptural pieces with lots of woodturned and rusted  steel elements. I have also been playing with smaller pieces I call my Facet Series. Both of these are early in the process and will continue to evolve, only time will tell where I go with them.

2017 Dates Coming Soon

Each class has a tentative schedule, but Trent likes to work with your individual areas of interest and gear your experience around those interests. With a maximum of 4 participants, Trent can give each person the attention they need.  You can expect to learn various techniques for bowls and hollow forms as well as numerous ways to manipulate wood into the desired effect.

I have been working a lot this past year with my daughter Kailee on designing, manufacturing, packing and shipping all of our tools and equipment for woodturners. But we have had time to collaborate on several pieces and the piece above. We used glued together books as the medium and did carving and surface treatments on the vessel. We were excited about how these pieces play with the light. There are so many surfaces for light to reflect off of. It has given us ideas for future collaborations. 

The Creative Process

I approach the creative process/experimentation in a lot of different ways. It is an evolutionary process for me. Something might catch my eye and I might remember that and do some research on the particular idea that is sparked. I then do a lot of sketching or brainstorming to try and get my idea out (Your sketching does not need to be fancy. No one needs to know what it is besides you.  Just get your ideas out on paper). I then try and further develop my idea by taking some clay or flower foam and actually create myself a 3 dimensional model quickly. This allows me to work through some concepts so that I don't waste a lot of time and effort on an idea that is not going to evolve into what I envisioned it as. Once I have worked through that and decide to pursue it further I will make a small piece out of the actual material (most of the time wood). When I am done with a smaller piece like that I will again evaluate it, assess what is working and what is not and then make another piece. As it becomes more successful, I may make larger pieces that are more time consuming - still continually evaluating the pieces. In my workshops and teaching, I am continually telling people if they have an idea not to just make one and be done with it - but continue to refine your idea through a number of pieces. If you get to the point where you are not sure whether you like where it has gone, you can always look back and decide which one of the pieces in the grouping was the most successful. I like to think of this whole process like a recycling symbol. It is a never ending process. I find myself going back to the beginning and through the same steps over and over again.

Interview with Trent Bosch
Click here to view a short interview about Trent and his work.

This short presentation was produced by videographer and woodturner Larry Randolph from Springfield, MO. His company is Turtle Egg Productions. He also filmed and produced my latest video, Revelations in Hollowing. Larry was amazing to work with in the production of the video. Being a woodturner, he was able to anticipate and get views of the process that only a woodturner would really understand the value of. I cannot say enough about how much fun it was working with him.  The collaboration we went through in the production of this video was a great experience for both of us. If and when you want to tell your story, Larry is the guy. Check out his website to learn more.   

We are excited to announce that we have a new DVD:  Revelations in Hollowing: 25 years of Refining the Process. 

Over the past 25 years professional woodturner and instructor Trent Bosch has not only been making thousands of hollow forms, but going over every aspect of the process and refining it. Through the development of new techniques and equipment, he has made hollow forms more precise and accessible than ever before.

He takes you step by step through the process, showing you multiple approaches, allowing you to decide which works best for you. 

In this video he shares his knowledge of this process with you in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. Take your hollowing skills to the next level with this instructional video.
