Wood Turning: Beginning to Advanced

  • Blue Heron Woodworking (map)

Wood turning is one of the fastest growing segments of the woodworking community. See what all of the excitement is about during these basic turning classes. Students will learn the most fundamental cuts using the most basic tools.

For beginners, students will design and turn a poplar-wood candlestick or honey dipper for use back home.

If you've been wondering just how to turn your own keepsake wooden bowl, you've found the class! Students will design and turn a small poplar-wood bowl for use back home in their own homes or shops.

Take these 3 hour classes if you are a beginner, or have some experience at the lathe and need a refresher.

Those with more advanced woodturning skills and are more experienced at
the lathe are also invited to take any class. Our instructors can tailor
any class to meet your particular needs. Please contact the instructor
before class to plan accordingly.

All lathes, tools, sharpening, and chucks will be provided.

Students are encouraged to bring their own tools for use and/or sharpening.
