Spinning Tops: A Spindle Turning Primer

Learn and practice the fundamental skills of spindle turning by cranking out a few spinning tops. Turn these fun little toys while concentrating on spindle grain turning techniques. We will cover sharpening, cutting end grain cleanly, turning thin parts, and end grain hollowing for a French style finger top. Some experience is helpful but not necessary. This class will prepare you to tackle candlesticks, boxes, finials and more with confidence.
