The best way to grow our skills is to
make stuff!

In this session, I offer several projects that make great holiday gifts, or items to sell at craft shows, while at the same time improving your turning and design skills.

These projects use small pieces of wood, and are perfect canvases for trying out new designs, finishes, and textures.
Learn tool technique and control, and develop your eye for design.

I will teach you the basic cuts that are the building blocks of all turnings. You don't need special tools to do this!

Making multiples offers us the best opportunity to train our eye. Just like turning skill, design can be learned. I’ll show how I trained myself, by making multiples and comparing them.

You will learn:

- Turning techniques for clean cuts
- Tool control
- Principles of good design
- Developing your eye

- Finishing
- Fast, fun projects to build skill and try new ideas

- Gain confidence and proficiency!
