What’s Happening at the Ranch this Month?

January at the Ranch is the beginning of the Winter/Spring semester. We’re back on our regular schedule meeting with the students each month. We welcomed new class members bringing our total to 20. It’s the largest group of students since the program’s inception. We welcomed five new beginners with the Safety and Shop Orientation session. They learned to turn a square piece of wood to round. Our seasoned beginners worked on turning a platter. This introduced them to convex and concave curves as well as dealing with end grain. They worked with beautiful segmented blanks thanks to Ed Lewis. Our intermediate & more advanced students tackled making tower tops (Jake Niedling’s design & instructions).
