Reinforcing last few demos by combining both centre and faceplate turning . This time we will focus on a Project : small child's three legged stool.

Course 1: Woodturning for beginners

No experience needed - this basic course will start with safe use of a woodworking lathe.

The Centre to Centre sessions will include instruction for use of the Roughing gouge, Fingernail Gouge , Skew Chisel and Parting Off Tool. After that you would be able to make anything from a porridge spurtle through a chair leg to a baby’s rattle.

Faceplate work is all about turning bowls.

Approximate time for instruction 1hr, after which our two lathes can be used for practice .
