Turning on the Pole Lathe: Open Session

Course Overview

In this three-day tutorial open to students of all levels, participants will be guided through the process of turning wood on a pole lathe according to their skill levels and personal goals. We’ll cover both the basics and more advanced techniques. Starting with open form bowls, the class will move into turning end grain cups and, depending on skill level and experience, will turn handled bowls and cups. Time will be spent in the blacksmith shop making hook tools and discussing their design and maintenance as well. This will be a great class for any skill level from beginners to folks with some pole lathe turning experience. Please note this course is open to all levels of experience, but does require a basic amount of hand strength, stamina, and focus to be able to complete the projects listed. Being able to open a sealed jar is an example of basic hand strength
