Description

Have you been mesmerized by woodturning videos online and wanted to try your hand at the lathe? 
Foundations: Woodturning is just the class to get you started. Our instructor will provide you with an overview of different lathe types, parts and tools, and demonstrate proper operation. We'll also discuss how to select wood for your turning projects, prepare blanks, and a few common turning projects you can start with.  After the introduction, you'll get some hands-on experience turning to become familiar with the different lathe tools, what they do, and proper holds.  As you practice, you'll turn a unique spindle that we'll add hardware to in order to create a one-of-a-kind wine stopper.

This is a beginners level class - No prior experience needed!

The Minnesota Tool Library is a membership based non profit which offers members access to tools, workshop space, and community. By sharing access to tools, no one needs to own costly tools for occasional use. With MTL, we all have low-cost access to the tools we need, when we need them. Moreover, we engage the community to expand its collective skill set, helping each other to learn which tools to use for meaningful projects and connect with each other while doing it. Classes are vital to MTL’s mission. They open the doors to all to learn about different tools, how to handle them and empower community members to create projects of their own.
