About the Course
This course is designed for those who want to take their first step into wood turning with the wish to create something on the lathe. No fuss, just fun !
You will learn how to mount a piece of wood on the lathe using a faceplate and a chuck. How to cut and shape the wood using gouges, abrasives, finishing techniques, and if you wish and there is time a little carving . You should leave at the end of the day with your masterpiece to show to all !
Renowned wood turner Nick Agar now works from an outstanding and spacious riverside workshop and studio with breathtaking scenery of the River Dart and the surrounding South Hams.
