Eight Tuesday evenings.
Woodturning is incredibly fun to do. Especially if your technique is well mastered, it becomes more fun every day! In this basic course woodturning you learn in 8 evenings all basic techniques of woodturning, the cutting way. How do I get my first piece round? Which chisels do I use and why? How do I sharpen your chisels? Wet wood/dry wood? What is a safe speed? Which wood do you use for what? What is a good lathe? Sanding? At the end of the course you take your workpiece home. For starting woodturners a course on a weekly basis is very pleasant because you can practice in between the lessons at home. The next week you come back with new questions and comments.
