What it is all about?wood turning

Can you use a lathe and wood-turning tools? If you are an adult and you can’t but would like to learn, this might be the course for you. Once you have learnt the basics you will then experience the pleasure and satisfaction of creating objects such as tool handles, bowls, vases and other items to make and perhaps give as gifts.

What will we cover?

  • Lathe components and their use
  • Safety procedures for the lathe and other tools
  • Tool types and use including the ABC of wood turning
  • Wood blank mounting techniques
  • Face plate and spindle turning
  • Sanding and polishing
  • Tool sharpening
  • How to develop and complete projects

What do I need to bring?

Just a note pad and a pen.
