Our most popular woodturning course, the Woodturning 101 Workshop is highly recommended for those who have little or no experience on a wood lathe. Also, we recommend this course for those who have spent significant time on the lathe yet are not proficient in sharpening and proper cutting techniques.

Emily Ford graduated from Utah State University, where she studied history, folklore, and photography. She lives in Clearfield, UT, with her husband, 6 children, 2 cats and 2 dogs. She has been turning wood since 2015 and loves wood turning as a folk-art with a rich history and typically passed on from one person to the next. She loves the woodturning community and the friends she has gained, and enjoys spending time in her shop, turning and singing along to whatever is playing on the radio. To learn more about Emily, you can follow her on Instagram @sheturnswood.
