Woodturning ‘Fun’Damentals with Tim Yoder April 25-29, 2022
Are you a new woodturner? Then this class is for you. While creating several fun projects, Tim will teach you the primary techniques of woodturning. Students will learn how to stand, shift their weight, hold the tools and dance with the lathe. Topics will cover lathe functions, tool techniques, wood selection and more. This class will leave students with a great foundation to successfully take on any woodturning project. If you have ever experienced those traumatizing dreaded “catches” in turning, no worries; Tim will show super slow-motion video, which explains the physics behind a good cut and a catch. Once you see for yourself what happens ‘in the blink of an eye’ will make the reasons for a catch crystal clear. Planned projects include a rolling pin, kitchen scoop, honey dipper, spinning top, doorstop, weed pot, mallet, bowl, platter and lidded box. Tim is practically the poster boy for the joy of turning. His enthusiastic approach and self-effacing personality make it ok to make mistakes (Tim likes to call them design modifications!). Most importantly he wants everyone to have FUN because that is what woodturning should be.
