Detailed Description

Taming the Skew with Hal Simmons

Wednesday, December 2, 2015 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Class Size: 8
Hands-On Workshop

When woodturners think of using the skew, two terms come to mind - fear and fascination. Fear comes from what appear to be inevitable catches or dig-ins, and fascination comes from the fact that the tool is so versatile and will produce the best cuts of any woodturning tool.

This class will focus on overcoming the fear factor by understanding how a catch or dig-in is produced and how to prevent it. The focus on fascination will come from learning how to produce planing cuts, v-cuts, end-grain/straight or perpendicular cuts and beads. Some prior use of turning tools will be helpful, but is not required.

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

Highland Woodworking reserves the right to cancel any class. Full refunds will be issued in that event. Students withdrawing from a class must notify Highland Woodworking 10 or more days prior to the beginning of the class to receive full credit or refund. No refund or credit will be issued with less than 10 days' notice.
