Experience the excitement of creating, shaping, and making objects on the wood lathe.

Professional turner Matt Monaco will introduce you to the tools of the trade and their ideal applications — as well as demonstrating how turning can also help develop all of your hand tool skills across a diverse range of tools.

We will focus on the most important foundations of good technique: how to develop fine tool control and proper body mechanics at the lathe; how to properly shape, sharpen, and use your tools; and how to practice for maximum effect.
