Fine-Tuning Your Skills

This is your chance to perfect your finishing cuts, to reduce the need for sanding, to be
innovative and creative. To use the skills you already have, but make them even stronger.
For this class, you’ll have some woodturning experience, but looking to refine your skills. You’ll master
the basic tools for bowl and spindle turning - and dramatically improve the finish of your work.

As always, we’ll cover the basics of safe working practice to refresh your memory to ensure everyone work safely. We will then chat about your turning, what you enjoy and what you wish to improve on. This allows me to tailor the day around your own needs and expectations.
