Whether you have a lathe at home and want to learn how to use it, or you plan to come to CCSA’s Woodworking Studio to make projects there, this class is for you! In this class you will learn the ins and outs of turning wood. Starting with an introduction to the lathe you will learn how to turn several basic shapes. This class covers basic safety, machine components, tools, and basic operation of the tools and equipment while making different shapes of wood. Students will then learn how to sharpen the blades and begin making spindles, ornaments, and bowls. Students are required to provide their own ANSI certified face shields which can be purchased locally at Lowe’s Hardware or Tractor Supply. They can also be purchased online.
