About the Event
This school is designed for the beginning turner and will be taught by expert turners from the Hunt County Woodturners and Golden Triangle Woodturners. Students are not required to have previous turning experience. Class size is limited to 10 students.
The school will provide to each student a fully equipped lathe, all wood materials that will be used during the two day school, as well as the hands-on expert instruction to learn the basic woodturning skills.
Students must provide their own woodturning tools and a safety face shield that meets the ANSI Z87+ (High Impact) standard. Students may also wish to bring a dust mask as well. A basic set of tools and safety face shield can be found for purchase online on many sites, as well at your local Rockler store. A recommended basic set of woodturning tools would at least include a bowl gouge, spindle gouge, skew chisel, spindle roughing gouge, and parting tool.
Woodturning safety is always a high priority. Students must review the Woodturning Safety Tips prior to attending the first day of this training. Access this Safety Tips document by clicking https://drive.google.com/file/d/13OB_LIsxrZT8hmNg6S4yyPRa4x2b9tmv/view?usp=sharing.
This event is a collaborative initiative between Hunt County Woodturners in Greenville, Golden Triangle Woodturners in Denton, and the Rockler store in Frisco.
