Port Townsend School of Woodworking
Preserving the Tradition


Turning and Turning.....

We've discussed including a turning program in the School since our very first discussions about starting the school. A week or so ago we got a nice letter from the American Association of Woodturners (aka AAW) awarding us a grant that will allow us to get three or four small benchtop lathes. We're planning on getting these after we open the second room at the school.

We're also talking to Bonnie Klein about teaching a course in the Fall. Bonnie is a master turner plus she invented the mini lathe and a threading jig.

We've also been offered a very large lathe and we'll be pursuing that over the next few months.

If you are interested in turning and learning more please let us know. You can use the website to contact us or you can post comment to this post.
