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