Primary tools for this class include the spindle roughing gouge, the skew, the spindle gouge, the parting tool and the bedan. Students will spend part of the class learning to use each of the tools through guided practice and spend the latter part of the class using the techniques that were learned earlier in the day to create projects like finger tops, honey dippers, pestles, goblets, carvers mallet, etc. The focus of this class is spindle turning and does not cover bowl turning.
