This class is designed for those wishing to advance their skills from novice on a wood lathe. Class sizes are small so you will get a lot of time on one of our multiple lathes. Projects will range from small fountain pens, progressing to bowls and platters with an emphasis on safety.

The TTL Makerspace is a thriving community of like minded makers and the perfect place to develop a foundation in shop safety and etiquette. We will try to spend most of the class on the lathe with students taking turns on our different machines.
