This seminar, with Instructor Andy Kuby, is geared toward beginners but is open to the more experienced turners who want to brush up on their skills.  It has something for everyone who is interested in woodturning!  You will have your own lathe to work on for your projects.  You will begin by turning spindles, then work your way up to turning bowls.  Along the way you will learn the proper way to use the spindle and bowl gauges as well as tool selection.  Andy will also discuss the different lathes and tools that are available, safety, sharpening, upkeep of your lathe, wood selection, sanding and finishing.  You will also see how you can make some of your own tools and try out some embellishing tools as time allows.
