The wood lathe can be used for a variety of applications; our members have turned everything from beautiful wooden bowls, to custom chair legs and even baseball bats. 

Topics covered in this course include: preparing material for the spindle, chuck turning, proper tool selection and sharpening, and basic finishing techniques. The first portion of this class will be lecture based with instructor demonstration followed by a free period of hands on practice and Q&A.
