Youtube videos can inspire and entertain. They can show you project steps. Books and magazine articles can also add to your woodturning knowledge. But woodturning is a bit like learning to play a musical instrument. I believe that attending a class or getting private instruction from a woodturner who can teach is essential to learning how to use your tools correctly. Videos, books and magazine articles cannot provide essential feedback like an instructor can.
I teach private lessons in my home workshop in Suwanee, GA just North of Atlanta. I teach woodturning basics, bowl turning, box making, texturing and thread chasing. Lessons are structured around what you want to learn: sharpening, tool use, bowl turning or other projects. I have a Laguna 1216 Midi lathe and a full-size Powermatic 3520 so can accomodate two students at one time. Contact me for more information.
