Lathe Classes for Beginners
Shaping, or “turning” wood on a lathe is a simple process and loads of fun.
Turning a Bowl from the Log: We will begin this class by splitting fresh cut hardwood logs into half-round blanks. We will then rough-out our blanks into circles, mount them on the lathe, and, using various gouges and scrapers, learn to remove all the wood that isn’t part of the bowl within.
March 12, 10 am – 4 pm; $130
