Wood Lathe Course – Level I

Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: ( 3) Level: Beginner Category: ,

Would you like to try your hand at woodturning, the most zen activity in woodworking? Would you like to learn how to make your own bowls, candleholders, table legs and thousands of other objects?

That’s what this course is for. Over the course of 5 sessions, we will teach you to become autonomous on the wood lathe. This 5-session course is there for that. We take the time to discover in depth the use of the wood lathe, and practice a maximum under the supervision of Chloé, cabinetmaker and wood lathe enthusiast:

Day 1: Lathe physics and safety, the different gouges, the different types of wood, first tests.
Day 2: Sharpening, turning between points, making a mallet
Day 3: Turning on platform, physics, specific gouge, safe operation
Day 4: Turning a bowl
Day 5: Finishing, sanding and oiling of the creations

Skills required: none, except curiosity! But beware, this activity is known to be highly addictive…

The cost includes all materials.

The sessions will take place on the same days at the same times, for 5 consecutive weeks.

In addition to the 5 sessions, the Wood Lathe Course gives you free access to 6 hours of workshop time, to advance your project between sessions.

La formatrice était vraiment très pédagogue. Et nous sommes vites entrés dans l’action.
