Event Overview

In this class we introduce students to the proper tools, materials, and woodworking techniques to set up and turn wood on a lathe.


Turning is a fun, easy way to create a variety of items. With the skills gleaned from this class you can just about anything cylindrical - candle holders, table and chair legs, mallets, fancy pens, etc. It's a great way to make unique gifts for friends and family, repair furniture, and more.


The project of the day will be to create a simple candle holder. We shall demonstrate a variety of different carving tools and how to create various shapes on the lathe. Students will then have the opportunity to rough out and refine their own candle design, with a great deal of creative control on the final product.

    This was the second wood turning class I took with Joseph, and both have been excellent. I had a great time trying out all the different tools and experimenting with different shapes, and made a neat, space-age-looking candle holder in the process.
