The wood lathe can be used for a variety of applications; our members have turned everything from beautiful wooden bowls, to custom chair legs and even baseball bats. 

In this course you will create a pen using the wood lathe. The skills you develop will also allow you to make a variety of other small tools including razor blade handles, seam rippers, mini-screw drivers, and letter openers.
