    This class has a prerequisite. Please see below.

    Get started on your woodturning adventure with this three-session beginner's class, where you will learn safety, tool control, and how to create the basic shapes involved in spindle and bowl turning. A small project will be started and completed as time permits.

    By successfully completing this class, you will be cleared to use the wood lathes for spindle turning during Open Studio. While you will also be eligible to take a bowl-turning class, it is strongly suggested that you spend time turning in Open Studio a few times before you enroll in a bowl class. 

    In Session 1, you will learn about woodturning safety, bevel contact, and gouge technique focusing on good body mechanics - all important to building a foundation to launch your turning skills. You will use the roughing gouge during most of the class, followed by an introduction to the regular (“fingernail”) spindle gouge. Tools you will use: spindle roughing gouge and fingernail spindle gouge.

    In Session 2, you will review the earlier lesson, and then focus on the spindle gouge and parting tool, learning new mechanics for turning beads and coves. Toward the end of class, you will learn how a scroll chuck and tenon work in preparation for Session 3.

    In Session 3, you will increase the precision of your turning technique by making a small project such as a honey dipper, finial, spinning top, or goblet, with your own design elements.  You will use a scroll chuck, a Jacobs chuck and Forstner bit. 

    Details:
    • Ages 14+ are welcome.

      This class has prerequisites. Please see below.

      Learn the basic features of LightBurn, essential software that controls both of our new laser machines. This is the software you'll use whether you are quickly cutting out some parts for your project or are fine tuning your complex etching. LightBurn software replaces RetinaEngrave you may have used previously.

      This class will get you started and will help you implement your own creative laser designs. This class is not a substitute for "Intro to the Laser Cutter".

      Who should take this class?

      If you took "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the Full Spectrum Laser, this class can get you up and running with our new laser cutters. If you've taken "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the new lasers and are ready to see how to get more from LightBurn, this class is for you. If you used Inkscape and RetinaEngrave with the FSL and didn't like the software, this class is for you. If you loved using Inkscape and RetinaEngrave, you'll learn how LightBurn fits into your workflow.

      The class covers the basics of LightBurn in the laser cutter workflow. It also covers setting laser parameters for cutting and engraving, importing your designs, vector graphics (line art) vs raster graphics (pixel art), manipulating shapes and tuning images, using the laser libraries, and previewing your work.


      Prerequisite: Laser 101: Intro to Laser Cutter Operations. Please login to your BARN account and click on "My event registrations" to ensure you have completed the required prerequisites before you register for this class.

      Details:

          Learn to operate BARN's Laguna CNC woodworking router and go home with an oval lidded box with custom engraving. Open to students who have beginning skills in Fusion 360, this class will introduce you to this design program’s CAM (computer assisted machining) functions.

          At the first session in the ETA Studio, you will work in Fusion 360 to design your box. Starting with a standardized design, you will tweak the design and create custom engraving to add to the lid. At the second session in the Woodshop, you will use the CAM functions in Fusion 360 to develop tool paths for the router, output G code to run the router, and use the Laguna CNC to cut out and embellish your wooden box.

          You will make the box from maple and walnut. With the lid, the box will be 5¼ inches long, 4 inches wide and up to 3 inches high. At the end of class, your box will be ready for sanding and finishing.
