Spring 2022 Classes
There are two sessions of Introduction to Woodturning being offered this Spring.
Here are the results of the first night of spindle turning. We all turned mallets from green white oak. The one on the left is still waiting for finish.
This Spring I will be teaching a workshop focusing on sharpening, tuning, and using chisels and hand planes on January 28, 29, and 30. I’ve given a detailed description of the workshop on the main page of this website. If you are interested in sharpening other wood working tools I will make every effort to address the interests of each student.
Also this Spring I’ll be teaching a hand tools class making Presentation Boxes like those pictured above. The class will run for 6 Mondays from 6:30 to 9:30 beginning February 28 (skipping March 14 for Spring Break). There is also a longer description of this class on my main page.
