Wood Turning for All

Woodturning is a great hobby and it has a short learning curve, the skills last a lifetime, and you get to make wood chips fly!

Few things are more satisfying than creating something out of wood with your own two hands-that beautiful bowl, useful pen, or one-of-a-kind ornament turned on the lathe instantly becomes a source of pride, a family heirloom, or a favorite gift.

This class is will teach you how to do all of these in a safe, encouraging environment.  If you’ve been turning for a bit and want to add in some new project work, Rudy can help push your skills to a new level.

Each student has their own Jet Midi Lathe and  there is plenty of hands on time to work on a wide range of projects.  These are the main elements of what you’ll learn:

  • What to know when buying and aligning your first lathe
  • How to select wood for your projects
  • Safety practices for dust collection, face shields, and the tool maintainace
  • Techniques for sharpening and using your turning tools
  • Basic chucking techniques (don’t worry if you dont know what this is – we’ll show you)
  • Turning will be focused on three fundamental  projects that will build your skills step by step:
    • Spindle/Finial work
      • Learn how to make sanding cones, and how to make a finial
    • Ring, Lidded and Finial topped boxes
  • Turning safety
  • Methods for sanding and finishing your work
