Two Day Course – Cost – tba
Date to be confirmed
The pole-lathe is the traditional piece of equipment for turning green wood. It is very safe to use, makes no dust and no noise.
You will be provided with all the materials you need and will make your own pole-lathe to take home. There should be time to start to learn how to use it.
The traditional pole-lathe uses the springiness of a pole about 12 feet long.
On this course you will make a more compact version which uses elastic cords so that you will be able to disassemble it and take it home.
You can still use a pole to power it. You will need a fairly large car or a roof-rack to take your pole-lathe home.
