Effective and enjoyable woodturning is dependent on sharp tools that have quality profiles. Learn to sharpen the tools you need to turn spindles, bowls and other projects on the wood lathe.

This class is strongly recommended for students enrolled in Introduction to Woodturning and is required for any turners who wish to use BARN turning tools on an ongoing basis. You will receive hands-on training for sharpening gouges (spindle and bowl), and a brief overview of sharpening other tools such as parting tools, skews and scrapers.


  • You can bring one or two of your own tools to work on, or use BARN's tools.
  • Short-sleeve or tight-cuff tops and close-toe and comfortable shoes are required.  No jewelry other than "button-type" earrings for women is allowed, so no rings, bracelets, necklaces. Long hair must be tied back.
  • There is an additional Materials Fee of $5.00 that will be added to the class cost when you register.

Instructor: Jamie Straw has been turning wood for about three years, working on both spindle and bowl projects, and has taught woodturning at BARN since July 2017.  She is currently Vice President for Education and Training for the local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. Her focus is on helping students, especially new turners, build skills progressively as they design and create fun woodturning projects.
