This is an introduction to wood turning for anyone interested in using a wood lathe under the guidance of an experienced wood turner to gain an understanding of the process and get a feel for how it works. The class will cover safe operation of the wood lathe and you will get to experience first-hand how to turn a simple honey dipper to take home with you. This could be the start to the new hobby you are looking for or simply provide you with inspiration for your next project.
