Course Overview

Design, create, and finish a beautifully elegant side grain box on the lathe. This course will focus on the addition of fine details to accentuate and reinforce balance and tactility within the overall form. Emphasis will be placed on developing and advancing students' technique and design eye while learning the importance of tool control and finesse at the lathe. We will also cover nuances and benefits of sharpening modifications and developing muscle memory, which will help students gain the confidence and necessary skills to turn surfaces cleanly to prepare them for fine long-lasting finishes. This course requires some prior experience in woodturning, but is open to those working at a beginner level.
