Get started turning bowls and platters on the lathe in this wood turning class, and make a unique item for yourself or a friend. Bowl turning generally describes the use of a wood lathe to cut short material that has a large diameter, and typically produces bowls, plates, and often large hollow forms.
You will learn about basic operation of the lathe and safety while turning, talk about tool selection and types of cut, then practice making your first few cuts before turning down your own design.
This is an advanced class and is not part of the SBU class pack. Prerequisites to taking this class are Wood Turning 1 and Wood Turning 2: Spindles.
Class length is 3 hours. Materials and tools are provided, but feel free to bring in wood you are interested in working with if you have it!
