Registrants & Fees
New members are highly encouraged to attend this free monthly orientation to the Ohio Valley Woodturners Guild and our Learning Center.
We will acquaint you with a brief history of the OVWG that starts back in 1988 and how we've grown as a friendly group of people who love to turn wood. A key topic will be how we operate the Learning Center and how this great resource can help you on your journey of learning to turn wood and finding out what kinds of things you like to make.
Safely is a high priority for the OVWG in all of our activities. So, we will go over the parts of the lathe, and how to be safe when working on the lathe as well as the other tools in our workshop. We'll also do a brief introduction to sharpening. However, we have a free monthly class on sharpening that will help you do a great job of producing sharp tools for your work.
Finally, you will have a chance to try your hand at spindle turning as a hands on introduction to woodturning. You'll make a bead & cove stick. It will become apparent that beads and coves are the key design elements of many things around us every day.
The class is free. Tools & supplies will be provided.
