Into to Spindle Turning - $12

There is a reason the old woodturning Apprenticeships taught spindle turning first; that’s how you develop great tool control and an understanding of how wood likes to be cut. Let Jim introduce you how to properly and safely spindle turn. Roughing gouges, spindle gouges, parting tools and skews are all used in turning spindles. Roughing gouges are used to take stock from square to round, skews for smoothing the spindle, and spindle gouges are used for creating coves, beads and other details. We will cover all the different cuts and what it takes to be successful at spindle turning and share ideas on all the wonderful things you can make with spindles.

Time: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm ET
