Turn a Side-grain Box with Glenn Lucas

Woodturning  two day group class for people with a lathe.

Learn how to, or refresh your knowledge on making a side-grain box –  this class is aimed at people with some experience on the lathe – not a beginner class.  If you wish to bring along your own tools, Glenn will help you with sharpening. We are fully equipped with tools if you are traveling and cannot bring your tools.
