“The recent Shrink Boxes course was a great introduction to this technique, it is similar to spoon-making in that it is a skill which requires few tools and can be practiced at home using easily available timber.  A great mix of interesting people and expert tuition in a beautiful and relaxed setting.”

Dan attended Shrink Boxes 1 day course in June 2013

This one day course is an introduction to turning green, unseasoned wood on a treadle operated pole lathe.

Starting with a locally sourced hardwood log such as ash or sycamore, we'll use hand tools such as axes, froes and drawknives to split, shape and shave a billet ready for the pole lathe, then the fun really begins.

We can make many things from rolling pins to chair legs and tool handles.  Anything you make you'll take away.

WARNING: pole lathe turning can be addictive
