November 13th from 12:30pm – 4:00pm
This course will transition you from the skills of making spindles supported on opposite ends of the workpiece to making bowls, vases and other structures where the turning takes place on one end of the workpiece. You will learn turning speeds as they relate to the sizes of the work, turning methods, how to size raw material for turning on the lathe, tool rest and tool position, mounting methods, and of course, how to avoid making firewood from failed projects. We will also discuss tool and machine maintenance so everyone can use the lathe safely and repetitively. This is an introductory course to bowl making and because of class size and time, everyone will work a little on the same project, just to get used to techniques and methods. Afterwards, you will be able to reserve the machine for creating your own projects.
The Beginning Wood Lathe Badge is a prerequisite for this class. Workshop attendees will need to be properly outfitted to attend this course. This includes: closed toed shoes, no loose clothing or accessories, and hair tied back. Safety equipment including protective glasses and hearing protection are provided, however, you’re welcome to bring your own as well.
