This is the perfect introductory class for beginning turners. First, you’ll learn the operation of the lathe and how to safely secure your wood during turning. Then we’ll demonstrate the proper use of basic turning tools, including the roughing gouge, spindle gouge, scraper and parting tool. Finally, you’ll practice all these techniques as you turn a maple mallet to take home and show off to your family and friends. We provide all safety equipment, hand tools and one lathe per student. Once you’ve completed this class, you may continue on to either of our Level I classes.
