Wood Turning

Basic course Wood Turning (OWPHDE)

It’s wonderful to see how quickly wood forms shapes under your hands on the lathe: think candlesticks, chair legs, chess pieces, wheels, pulleys, ornamental finials, spindles and wooden hammers for example. This course focuses on lathe cutting techniques, but it also looks at scraping techniques, tools, suitable woods, lathing profiles, finishing and, of course, safety. Once you get the taste and the hang of woodturning, you probably won’t be able to stop. (Note: lunch is NOT included).
