Fundamentals of Woodturning

Since 1999, we have been offering this workshop which emphasizes learning sound woodturning techniques. You will learn about and develop skills in the areas of safety, shaping and sharpening of tools, spindle, and bowl turning, how to use a pattern to make duplicate items, design and finishing.

Projects include: Beads, Fillets & Coves, Drawer Knob, Goblet, and Bowl. If you have not turned before this workshop is an ideal beginning. If you have turning experience we build on your skills. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to cut a clean surface off the tool and dramatically reduce the amount of sanding. You will also learn how to avoid catches so that you can turn with confidence.

Great Course

This is a great course for anyone interested in Woodturning . Terry is a superb teacher that provides solid experience and thorough instruction. I have previously turned a few items but learned so much over the weekend course that has allowed me to better enjoy my time at the lathe. This course has sparked me to expand my skills and to venture into new styles of turning that I would have never attempted before.
Well worth the time and reasonable cost

Great Course

If you like to learn by doing, this course is definitely for you. After a brief overview of the lathe and safety, off we went into four fun projects that cover many basic and intermediate techniques of turning. Terry was an excellent instructor, keeping each step small enough to focus on learning the techniques with plenty of review to solidify the concepts. With a small class size, there's the opportunity to ask questions or have Terry look over your shoulder.

If you're looking to start turning or need a refresher, I would definitely recommend this class!
