An Intro to Turning – Christmas Gifts Using The Lathe

A wonderful opportunity to learn to turn on a lathe with a great instructor in a comfortably paced class. Open to new turners, as well as those of all skill levels who would like to break bad turning habits and fortify their skill base.

Taught by renowned turner Rudy Lopez you will have a fun week making small gifts for those you love.

This is a hands-on class.  Every student has their own brand new lathe (Jet Midi 1220) with a set of gouges.  Instruction covers everything from wood selection to finishing – so don’t worry if this is new to you.

This class is perfect for the beginner who is curious about learning how to use the lathe; and is also very good for those who have been turning for a bit and want to add finesse and more technique to their skill base.

Some of the things you will learn about include how to:

  • Set up your lathe
  • Mount wood onto the chuck
  • Sharpen and use gouges

More importantly, you will make many of the following:

  • Christmas decoration
  • Candlesticks
  • Rolling Pin
  • Flower Vase
  • Small bowl
  • Small plate
