Taking a turn

Robert Kloppenborg, Marysville, uses a wood lathe. Woodturning involves using a lathe to create objects. The wood remains in the same position as the instrument turns and shapes the bowl or other object.

Woodturning projects created on a lathe with a minimal amount of time and money is limited only by your imagination, said Robert Kloppenborg, Marysville.

“Woodturning is a fun and exciting hobby for people of all ages and skill levels,” said Kloppenborg, who started woodturning three years ago. “When woodturning, there are a number of safety considerations that must be kept in mind so that you can have a great time turning while being safe.”
