Fundamentals of Green Wood Turning  

In the class students will learn the fundamentals of woodturning through demonstrations and lectures focusing on the use of green lumber. We will begin with spindle turning and then move onto learning the basics structures of beads and coves. These skills are the foundation of all shapes in woodturning. On the first day, students will be urged to create a mallet or two, or something similar in size to their desire. From there, we will move on to bowl turning, how to select lumber and how to properly mount the lumber to the lathe. Throughout these projects we will learn the importance of practice, proper tool use, drying and finishing techniques and tool sharpening. It is the perfect combination for a fun, relaxing educational experience.
