Wood Turning: Bowls & Beyond

Use the lathe to make wooden bowls, platters, artistic sculptures and more. Start with pieces of tree limbs and trunks, make them round, and take off from there. Beginners will learn basic lathe techniques. Experienced students will advance to the next level at their own pace. Wood will be provided in class; advanced turners may bring their own. No physical strength or previous woodworking experience required. All levels welcome.
