Introduction to Woodturning @ the North Carolina Furniture School
Nov 10 @ 9:00 am – Nov 11 @ 4:00 pm

North Carolina Furniture School Weekend Workshop: Introduction to Woodturning

Join us for two full days of woodturning! This course is designed to introduce you to the tools and techniques for safe, efficient woodturning. It’s a good course for beginners because it starts with the basics, provides a strong foundation in shop safety, and launches you right into fast and efficient woodturning. You will gain a solid understanding of common tooling, machine options and features, types of cuts, basic lathe joinery for furniture making, spindle turning, bowl turning, and more!

Both days will begin with a morning presentation and Q & A session, followed by hands-on learning at the lathe. Materials are included. Samples will include a bead and cove set, cylinders, cones, joinery samples, and a completed wooden bowl.

We look forward to meeting you in person, reserve your spot today – seats are limited and fill very quickly!
