Learn the basic concepts of woodturning, including lathe and tool safety, basic project design, tool selection, and techniques for cutting and shaping both end grain and side grain. Basic tools provided include: roughing gouge, spindle gouge, bowl gouge, skew, parting tool, and scraper. Explore how the tools cut wood and then use these techniques to create projects such as a honeydipper, finger top, pestle, goblets, boxes and maybe even a small bowl. More experienced turners may produce more complicated projects.
If you have your own tools, please bring them. If you have wood that you want to bring, please do, but turning blanks will be provided. Price includes a materials fee of $30 which is non-refundable after class begins.
