Coppice Products Course at the Centre for Alternative Technology

Pole lathe actionLast week I spend an incredible four days at the Centre for Alternative Technology learning how to split and turn wood using hand tools. OK its unashamedly rustic but its so exhilarating taking a log and within a few hours turning it into a thing, a useful thing. I’m going to put some pictures up over the next few weeks with an explanation of some of the basic techniques we learnt. But just for starters here’s a couple of snaps of some of the things we were doing. There’s a green woodworking course at CAT in September so if you want to find out more visit Three of the places have already been booked by people who did this course. As places are limited its good to get in quick.Pole lathe turning at CAT
