Intro to Woodturning with Bill - April 27-28
Thu, Apr 27, 2017, 8:30 AM – Fri, Apr 28, 2017, 4:30 PM PDT
A two-day class in the fundamentals of woodturning in my woodturning shop near Nevada City CA. The class is focused toward raw beginners or those with some experience, but who may need a “restart” or to recover some of the fundamentals that have been missed. No prior experience is required. All equipment, tools, gear, wood are provided.
Each student has their own dedicated lathe and needed tools for the full course. The shop is well equipped with four lathes, two sharpening stations, two band saws, drill press, dust system and more hand tools than one can count. The Lathes -- each a little different, each fully capable of all we will do in the class, each with a different flavor. The variety of lathes provides students the opportunity to experience differences and realize the variation in options.
We create an enjoyable atmosphere tailored to each individual’s needs and goals. With a maximum of three to four students, the class readily can be customized so that each proceeds at his or her own pace to get the most out of the experience. We will be relaxed, safe, comfortable and have a good experience. We will have fun.
Everyone will take away several woodturning projects they have completed, including at least one open wooden bowl by the end. That’s the plan.
