Woodturning - Wednesday

Description

Description

During this class different species of woods, sources for wood and equipment, wood turning tools, lathes, and techniques of the wood turning craft will be explored with beginner students.  Students will have the opportunity to use fine lathes and a variety of woodturning equipment.  For beginner students, each participant will create spindle turnings of candlesticks, rolling pins, pens, and Christmas ornaments as well as faceplate turning of bowls and platters.  For intermediate students, this course will continue the art, science, and techniques needed to turn a block of wood into functional sculpture. We will explore some rough-edge and green-wood spindle turning, wood curing, selection, and tool sharpening. You may never look at a pile of firewood the same again! Supplies for these projects are included in the tuition.  After these projects are complete, students can bring in their own supplies for that special wood turning project they have always wanted to create.  The final night of class students will have a chance to “show” their work created during the course to other students.

Safety Equipment

Each student is to provide their own safety glasses or shield, N95 mask, and earplugs.
