 What’s Happening at the Ranch this Month? 


May at the Ranch………  It’s the last month of tehe regular school year.  None of  the woodturning sttudents were in the graduating class this year.  Even though the regular classes are over till September, our workshops continue on the same schedule through the summer.   We may even have a few new students join the program this summer.   Why not join our group of volunteers at Wears Valley Ranch?   Our educational program is in its 8th year!   Contact Bob Law, Jake Niedling, Randy Fritchman or Ed Lewis for more information.

Workshop projects this month….  Our beginner students learned  to use a faceplate to turn bowls.  The projectd blanks were cut from various types of hardwood.  Our emphasis was on working with end and side grains.     Our intermediate students worked on unfinished projects to clean out their lockers.   They finished mirrors and lidded boxes from prior workshops.
