This half-day course is designed for the beginner woodturner taking their first tentative steps into spindle turning.
Spindle turning can often be a little stressful to beginners, with catches and dig-ins causing confidence to be lost. This course is aimed at heping beginners improve their spindle turning tool work by completing a simple, spidle project which they will take home with them.
Sharpening will be discussed briefly, but is not a main focus of the day. All tools and timber are provided, BUT if you own any tools I encourage you to bring them along for us to have a look at.
The course will begin promptly at 9.30am, so please make sure you are there in good time to settle in.
The order of the day is, briefly, as follows:
- Health & Safety in the workshop
- An explanation into the basics of spindle turning tools, with a brief discussion about sharpening
- Choosing and undertaking your chosen spindle turning project (there are 2 to choose from)
Please Note: The course will be quite intense and quite quickly-paced, so feel free to bring along a notepad for jotting things down. The course is limited to 3 people maximum to allow you the highest level of input from myself (it will only run with 2 people as a minimum).
We will have a tea/coffee break in the morning and the afternoon - although you can take as many additional comfort breaks as you wish!!
