Detailed Description

Beginning Turning with Hal Simmons

Sunday, October 5, 2014 from 9:00am to 4:30pm
Class Size: 8
Hands-On Workshop

Learn the basic concepts of woodturning, including lathe safety, project design, tool selection and basic techniques for cutting and shaping both side grain and end grain. Roughing gouges, bowl gouges, spindle gouges, parting tools and skews will be discussed and used.

Students will practice using these tools and techniques by making various items including a fine carver's mallet, as well as a few small objects such as a spinning top, gallery bowl, or small lidded box, time permitting.

This class is appropriate for all skill levels. Tools and materials will be provided. You can bring your favorite turning tool, if you want to practice using it.

For your safety, when attending a hands-on class, be sure to wear closed toe footwear.
