Class Description

Whether you're a rank amateur or are looking for a refresher course in turning, this basic bowl turning class is a fun and rewarding way to learn the simple pleasures of woodturning. Unlike many woodworking projects that can take days or even weeks to complete, handsome turned wooden bowls can be made in a short amount of time and prove both artful and functional. You'll learn the basics of open-bowl turning, focusing on tool selection, sharpening techniques for gouges, finishing options and safe operation of the lathe. During class, you'll work to make bowls measuring 5" - 6" in diameter and 1-1/2" - 2" deep.

All tools and materials will be provided but, as always, you're welcome to bring your favorite turning tool to learn how to sharpen and use it properly.

Optional list of tools to bring with you:

  • Pencil
  • Any lathe tools you own and prefer to use
  • Tape Measure
  • Dial Caliper, and other calipers you would rather use
  • Comfortable Eye Protection
  • Dust Mask
