Class Description: This six Evening class is designed for the beginning (or frustrated) woodturner and features extensive hands-on practice each night. Woodturning is a skill that requires some basic instruction and lots of practice. Students are turning on their own lathe most of each night of the class. Class starts with basic spindle skills and includes a few simple projects like a mallet and spinning tops. We then move on to faceplate turning which includes Walnut, Cherry, and Maple bowls and plates. Along the way we spend time learning about tool sharpening and general information about lathes, tools, chucks and various jigs used in woodturning. This is a great way to safely get into woodturning and gives you a good foundation for other more advanced turning classes and projects. Corey Anderson is a woodturner with 23 years of woodturning experience with 14 years teaching experience in woodturning. He is also a member of the Flatland Woodturners.
