Join instructor Duane Hill, accomplished wood turner for this two day, hands-on workshop. Learn the ins and outs of wood turning and spend the weekend working your way up to turning your very own wood bowls. Saturday will serve as an introduction to the art of wood turning and you will be introduced to the lathe and tools. Topics covered will include tool safety and sharpening, wood selection, and basic rounding wood safety. Sunday will be spent on the lathes, practicing and then turning your wood bowl(s). You will have the opportunity to turn 1-2 bowls. Bowl design will be covered.
Day 1: 8:30am-5:30pm Day 2: 8am-5pm Class length on days may vary depending on personal projects.
Note: Wood will be provided, but you are more than welcome to bring you own bowl blanks (6-8” diameter and about 3-4” thick). Wood can be wet or dry. All class participants will need a full face shield. There will be a few to borrow out at class.
