WKS436: Soapstone Turning on the Wood Lathe

Ever wished you could turn more than wood on a wood lathe? Here's the good news- you can! Students in this workshop will learn the finer points of turning soapstone on the wood lathe. Soapstone, unlike other stones, is soft enough to be tuned on the lathe, and can be worked more quickly, easily and accurately than with traditional stone carving. This class is also an excellent introduction to face plate turning, which is perfect for anyone looking to make concave projects (bowls, goblets, etc.). Students will turn a tealight candle holder out of a gorgeous piece of blue-green soapstone, the perfect starter project for anyone looking to turn more complex projects out of soapstone in the future.

Prerequisite: Wood Lathe SBU.
