Individualized Wood Lathe Turning Instruction

  • Blue Heron Woodworking (map)

Have you wanted to take a turning class, but the weekend times were not good for you? Or, you have a specific project in mind and want a little assistance? Maybe you are a turner and want a hand in learning a new tool or technique? Perhaps you are looking to purchase a lathe or certain tool, but would like to try it first before purchasing?

Blue Heron is now offering individualized turning Instruction, customized to the time and needs of the student. To see if this offering may be for you and yours, contact the instructor, Max Monts, at 812-361-9939 to determine what is the best way to meet your needs and to get a few possible times that both of you have available. When you have that information call Blue Heron or come by the store to select a time when you, Max, and the shop are all free and we will schedule that time block for your individualized instruction. Week days are best since many Saturdays are booked with other Blue Heron classes. Let's get turning!
