This is a four-day course in which you will make at least one vase from two contrasting woods glued

together and shaped. You will fine-tune the shape of the wood pieces and glue them together with a fast-setting super glue to form the turning blank, then mount the blank on the lathe and shape the outside of the vase. Various tools will be used to hollow the inside. Once you have finished hollowing and sanding the vase, you will apply a Danish oil finish. Some woodturning experience is desirable.
