Workshop/Course, from 4 Aug 2018

Pole Lathe Turning

Pole Lathe Turning

Details

You will learn the importance of choosing the right sections and making the right cuts, how to prepare the wood from a freshly cut log section, which part to use and how to reduce it in readiness for the lathe, using a draw knife and the saw horse, before turning it on the pole lathe. These lathes use leg power only so a certain level of fitness is required! This is a very satisfying and rewarding process.

The first of our dates is suitable for all abilities, including beginners. The second date is for Bowl Turning and is more suited to those who have had some experience of lathe turning already.

Price includes all refreshments and a lovely 2 course Aga lunch.
