Course Overview:

The goal of this course is to flatten that initial learning curve so that students will have the information needed to jump right in!   The study covered the safe use of the equipment and required PPE, what is out there for equipment, and a comparison of the different types. The Myriad of other bits, find them, their various uses, and the types of materials best suited for each bit. Then learn to carve a small barn owl, a tiki, wood spirit, or class choice.

This course will explain what finishes to apply, burning, stain, urethanes, water-based vs. oil-based, and interior exterior—mixing turpentine with oil-based finishes to get deeper wood penetration: different oils and wax finishes.
