Introduction to Multi-axis Woodturning

Begin the exciting art of woodturning with multiple centers to create wobbly looking, eccentric creations. You'll learn to set up your work to turn at multiple different axes using a standard four-jawed chuck so that you can continue this work without having to invest in very expensive specialized equipment. The instructor will discuss material and tool selection, sharpening for this special style of turning, and techniques. Some proficiency in turning spindles will be necessary, as multi-axis turning is an extension of these skills. This class is for intermediate and advanced woodturners with their own tools. We'll be using primarily 1/2" spindle gouges and narrow parting tools for the majority of the work. This class is open to students ages 18 and up. Masks and social distancing are required in this and all Sawtooth classes.
