Improve Your Turning Skills
Date: Sunday, Aug 23 - Saturday, Aug 29, 2020
Subject: Woodturning
Instructor: Rudolph Lopez
Share:

After exploring the correct way to sharpen different turning tools, we'll embark on basic "bead and cove" spindle technique to make spheres, eggs, spatulas, forks, and scoops. Next, with an emphasis on the ABCs (anchor, bevel, cut) of tool control, you'll learn proper bowl-gouge technique as you turn round and square plates, and smooth-rim and natural-edge bowls. Discover how subtle changes in shape greatly influence the aesthetics of the final form. Best for those with basic lathe experience.

Tuition: $630.00
