Turned on by turning? It's easy to learn. Many experienced turners, such as David Fry of Cabin John and Allen Hockenbery, president of the Chesapeake Woodturners, teach adult-education classes in wood turning at community colleges or community centers, or give private lessons. Joining the Capital Area Woodturners or Chesapeake Woodturners can put newcomers in contact with mentors and teachers in wood turning.
The Capital Area Woodturners Association holds monthly meetings on the second Saturday of each month (the next one is Saturday) at Bryant High School in Alexandria from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Members can give critiques of one another's work, and master turners will often show up to give demonstrations of the latest techniques or tools. See their Web site at www.capwoodturners.org.
The Chesapeake Woodturners usually meet on the third Sunday of each month from September to May. They also hold frequent workshops and demonstrations for newcomers. Their Web site is www.chesapeakewoodturners.com.
