Classes at Maryland Hall

posted Aug 5, 2012, 9:02 AM by Chesapeake Woodturners

There are two classes offered at Maryland Hall this fall:
  1. The usual Tuesday evening “Basic Woodturning” class covering the fundamentals for students new to the field or turners who feel the need to revisit the basics.
  2. A new class on Wednesday evenings; “Woodturning: Two Principles & A Thousand Tricks”. The class description as appears in the Md Hall Catalog is as follows:
A series of lecture/demonstrations covering a wide range of topics including, but not limited to: shape and other design features, finishing, tool sharpening and selection, spalting, vacuum chucking and at least one session in a professional shop. In-class demonstrations will, to some extent, be chosen by class requests but will include: ultrathin, natural edge, platters, spheres, dyed, open form, off-axis, and “punk” wood. There will be a very limited amount of hands-on instruction. Students will be furnished wood for a few projects to be done on their own.

Registration and other information for these classes and the Woodturning Co-op can be found at: (search for Woodturning)
