2-Day Beginner Woodturning School June 26-27, 2021 (9 am - 5 pm both days)
Time & Location
About the Event
This school is available for Hunt County Members only. It is designed for the beginning turner and will be taught by expert turners from the Hunt County Woodturners. Students are not required to have previous turning experience. Class size is limited to 10 students.
At a bargain price of just $150, this 9-5 two-day school will provide each student a fully equipped lathe, all wood materials, as well as the hands-on expert instruction to learn and practice basic woodturning skills.
It is highly recommended that students bring 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 good face shield that meets this safety standard is the Uvex Bionic Face Shield. It can be purchased from Business Partners of HCW: Rockler, Wood World of Tx, or Woodcraft. Use your HCW membership card and receive a 10% discount.
- It is important to note that HCW's approach to teaching woodturning skills is with using traditional woodturning tools. While carbide cutting tools can be used, traditional tools are preferred. A recommended basic set of woodturning tools would at least include a Spindle Roughing Gouge, Parting tool, Bowl Gouge OR Spindle Gouge. (Please know that extra traditional turning tools will be available for students to use at this training.) If you have not already purchased a basic set of turning tools, and are planning to do so, feel free to contact the lead instructor for this training, Tim White, to be sure you get the right tools for you. You can reach Tim by email at RSQWhite@yahoo.com or by phone at (214) 491-9117.
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 Safety Tips.
