Turning A Bottle Stopper with: Devon Palmer
All

Wednesday, December 12, 6 PM - 9 PM

Tools Required: Bring Own Lathe Tools (if Possible)
Description: Bottle Stoppers make great stocking stuffers and gifts all year long! Turning one on a lathe requires some imagination because there are an infinite number of designs you could use. Learning how make that design requires some skill that we will help you develop during this class. Devon Palmer is not only a great Turner, but he is a great teacher too! My suggestion is to do some research on the Internet and find a couple designs you want to try to duplicate. During the class, you will drill a hole in what is called a Blank, mount it to the Lathe, turn it with various tools Devon will first demonstrate and walk around to help you with, and then after sanding it smooth, you will apply a durable shiny finish! Screw the metal part of the stopper into the hole after removing it from the Lathe and you have a Bottle Stopper you will be proud of to show friends and family or give as a gift! After this class, you will easily be able to produce your own at home!

Prerequisite: Table Saw A-Z
Description: In this demonstration class students will expand upon the techniques learned in the Table Saw A-Z class. First, learn to build a Table Saw Sled (also known as a Crosscut sled).
