Learn how to woodwork

Join me for a fun day of hands-on learning in a small classroom setting (max 6 people). No tools or experience required, just come with closed toe shoes, a good attitude and go home with a finished project you can be proud of. Sign up over the phone or in-person at Woodcraft in Tigard.

Intro to woodturning

This class will provide a solid foundation of basic woodturning skills including an introduction to the lathe and tools. We will discuss safety practices, proper tool use, shaping cuts, troubleshooting, sharpening and finishing. You must take this class before you can take ‘Intro to Bowl Turning’.
