Beginners turning class

Turning Class at Rockler's Store 33 in S. Portland, ME

Turning Class at Rockler’s Store 33 in S. Portland, ME

On Saturday May 6th I taught my first class at Rockler in South Portland, Maine.  We did a beginners class and went over several aspects of turning which included how to clean and set-up the lathe to make their turning more enjoyable each day. How to sharpen their turning tools using the One-way Wolverine system. Then learning the ABC’s of turning. Anchor, Bevel and finally Cut and finally how to make beads and coves using a fingernail spindle gouge.

I hope they had a good time and learned a little something from the day. I know that I enjoyed sharing the skills that I’ve learned over the last 17 years. If you are interested, my next class at Rockler will be on beginning bowl turning and it’s May 20th starting at 10am.
