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/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 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. For this basic course wood turning no experience is needed. Some experience with wood working is a pré but not strictly necessary.
Attention will be paid to:
• Selecting, using and sharpening the right tool
• Wood selection saw and drying
• How to reach the most beautiful finish
