Live & On-Line

TURN YOUR OWN MALLET

This is the perfect time to work on your craft! And you can do it from the comfort of your home, in your pajamas!

Learn along with other woodturners as you participate in this live video conference class taught by Rudy Lopez and chat with your classmates from around the nation and world in real-time

There is a lot of interaction, and you’ll get to watch and engage with Rudy as he leads you through the process and techniques of turning these mighty mallets.  It’s as close as you can get to standing at the lathe with him 🙂

The class is split into manageable sections of approximately two hours online followed by work periods where you will work in your own workshop. 

Rudy will walk you through the step-by-step process of :

    • mounting the blank into the chuck
    • selecting the right tools
    • roughing out the shape
    • refining the beads and coves

Resources

You will get handouts, links, and if you need it wood blanks.  

You’ll also be invited to join our private Facebook group where you can chat, post questions, and get advice outside of class hours.  Come and join the quarantine team!

Finally, will we record each day, so that you can refer back to it as you work through your assigned tasks and homework.

Sign-ups are limited  – We want each of you to have a fabulous experience!
