Klassiker
We will work in small groups with intensive tutoring. Each participant will work at an individual lathe. You will have the possibility to test our whole range of woodturning tools and accessories.
Spindle turning:
Here, the wood fibres run parallel to the spindle axis. You clamp the workpiece either with a spur driver and the revolving centre or with a chuck.
On the first day we will start by getting acquainted with the lathe, its structure, the accessories as well as the jigs and clamps for spindle turning. This will be followed by an introduction into the basic required tools for spindle turning, such as roughing out-gouge, deep fluted gouge, parting tool, and chisel. We will practice handling and guiding hands-on, using simple workpieces in various types of wood. The participants will also be shown in detail how to sharpen tools at the bench grinder and the Tormek using different sharpening systems. They will have the opportunity to test the sharpening tools on the spot. On the next day, you will learn how to sharpen hook tools, scraper blades, and ring tools while working on either a jar or an end grain vessel or turning wood balls. You can alternatively work on your own ideas.
  • The combination of both courses (spindle and faceplate turning) forms the basis for woodturning your own objects.
  • If you book the spindle and faceplate courses together, we will give you a DICTUM voucher worth €20.
  • If you buy a woodworking lathe for more than €2000 from DICTUM, we will give you a voucher worth €150 for a woodturning course of your choice.
