AWA is offering a class on how to turn a pen. The class will be Saturday, May 7th at Del’s shop from 10am to 1pm. Cost of the class is $75. This fee includes all the material necessary to leave the class with a completed pen (blanks, tubes, pen kit). The Club will also provide the mandrels. Students must be Club members and must have taken the basic classes, or have equivalent training. Students will need to bring spindle tools (roughing gouge, spindle gouge, skew & parting tool) and safety shield. If you are short of tools or a shield, contact Bob Flint about the Club providing them.
The first 10 folks that contact Bob and follow up with a check will be registered for the class. Your registration in the class will be confirmed by email. If after 5 days Bob does not receive a check, your name will be removed from the list. We must have 8 students registered in the class by May 3rd, or the class will be cancelled and money returned to those who have paid.
