Woodturning Basics with Willard Lerums June 20-24, 2022
Whether looking to develop a turning foundation or further hone your skills, this class will be a boot camp in basics and proper technique. Students will be introduced to the lathe and all the associated tooling, shaping and sharpening to the proper grind, and the proper movements to produce the most perfect beads and coves. And that’s only Monday. Through demo and hands-on assistance students will be walked through several spindle, or long grain, projects. Once understanding the grain direction, students will learn how to hollow end grain and produce several end grain projects. Finally, students will be introduced to the wonderful world of face grain bowl turning. By Friday, students will have the proper tools, skills, and knowledge to produce endless possibilities at the lathe.
