Tools Required: Bring Your Turning Tools, Safety Glasses, Dust mask
Description: The concept of "ornamental woodturning" involves a lot of options, from turning ornamental jewelry boxes to what others perceive as a tree decoration.

Most of your instructor's woodturning experience is in the ornamental category, and some professional and advanced-level hobby turners focus strictly on ornamental turning; therefore, you will be shown some projects that he has completed that will serve as examples of how you can turn "ornamental" projects in the future. An ornament kit will not be used in today's class, strictly wood. You will practice making a hollow ornament body along with top and bottom finials. Students should bring suitable eye protection such as safety glasses, goggles, or a face shield. If you have any sawdust sensitivities a respirator or dust mask would be advisable. Also bring any wood turning tools you might have. Tools and safety gear will be provided for those who don't own them. Materials will be provided to make one ornament.
