Woodworkers – if you’re interested in adding turned parts to your projects, join us to learn more about the lathe, turning tools, and proper cutting techniques. Practice a variety of cuts, learn to make shapes required for spindle turning, and do some faceplate work. We’ll discuss stock preparation, layout techniques, and how to duplicate parts. Projects include table legs, bun feet, finials, drawer pulls, candlesticks, and a four-legged stool. Some turning experience is advised.
