Enjoy a safe and informative learning experience while further learning about the tools and equipment used for wood turning! This workshop is for those who have already taken our Intro to Wood Lathe Workshop with Des.
Partipants of this workshop will use Ambrosia Maple lumber to make a hollow bowl and incorporate design elements such as grooves, lip shapes, and more. This requires the participant to discuss the design concepts, think through how to achieve the finish product, turn two pieces and glue together, then finish turning and embellishing. We will use super glue to speed the process.

After registering, you will be asked which time slot you would like to choose. Please be aware that it is first come first serve for these time slots as there is only one instructor for this class.
