Bottle stoppers and openers are a fun project for the lathe. Design opportunities are limited only by the turners imagination and the participant will have an opportunity to practice tool techniques and forms while producing a stopper, opener or both during the session.
Some experience with a lathe is useful but not required. Proper use of tools and lathe safety will be stressed.
Are minors allowed? Only if accompanied by parent.
What to Wear: You must dress safely and appropriately. Arrive for class in long pants, closed toe and heal shoes with socks that protect up to the ankle. Long sleeves should be avoided.
