If you already know the basics, but are looking to improve your technique, please contact me to discuss your turning ability and goals for improvement. I certainly don’t know everything, but I do enjoy helping others improve their abilities. Send me a few photos of what you are turning; top, bottom and side views; or stop by with some of your work. That’s the best way for me to assess whether I can help. I can schedule a dedicated time to address what we can do together. 

Stay Healthy and Look for Round Stuff 

In the mean time, please stay safe and healthy. Keep an eye out for all the things that are made in the round. It is amazing the number of useful things that can be made on a lathe. See a few turned items here
