Learn to use a wood lathe so you can create your own table legs, knife grips, baseball bats, bowls, and beyond!

In the introductory class, you will go over how to properly set up a piece of wood for carving, as well as safety procedures and machine maintenance.

The instructor will demonstrate how to make a shot glass, following which each student will attempt to create a shot glass or other similar sized object.

Come to class with a ready-to-learn attitude and plenty of questions!  Please wear comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes, which you don’t mind getting dusty or dirty.  You will need safety glasses and a facemask, both will be available to borrow or buy before class, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.

The instructor, Henry Haneda, has had a long and diverse career spanning, but not limited to, photography, product and industrial design, including multiple award winning products.  Currently, he uses a precision lathe to create and sell high-end utilitarian products such as fishing gear, photography accessories, and knives.
