Have you ever noticed that many pieces of fine furniture feature turnings–such as table legs, bed posts, and decorative finials for casework? Learning to turn opens a whole new realm of woodworking possibilities. Despite what you may have heard, turning is not that difficult, and in this three-day course we’ll cover the techniques that you’ll need to add turning to your next project. To maximize practice time, each student will have his or her own lathe.
Note: The shop is air conditioned for your comfort!
