Increase your confidence at the lathe by working through a wide range of projects designed to develop and refine specific techniques. Each project is simplified or complicated to meet your skill level and beyond, with lots of demonstrations. Initially concentrating on cutting and chucking techniques, by the end of the week you’ll have turned several bowls, boxes, scoops, tops, plates, and possibly a car or pull toy, or you can work on your own pet project.
