Class #30

Pen Turning – Beyond the Basics

Rob Nelson

October 28 | 9 - 4


This class will be for the pen turner that wants to try new types of materials & more difficult pen kits. Materials will be focusing on plastics & anything else you can cut with a hand saw. The pen kits will be more detailed & complicated to assemble than the basic one-piece kits. If you take the basic class the day before this class, this is the place for you. Rob will be in contact with students via email before class.

Robert Nelson grew up on his family’s dairy farm in the town of Winchester, WI and owned and operated the farm for 30 years. He began turning wood in the 1970s. His passion for taking what would otherwise be firewood and turning it into something beautiful that can last for generations has become a second career. He has logged over 7,000 hours of learning and teaching wood turning. As a member of three wood turning groups, he demonstrates different types of turning to many fellow turners. Rob turns pieces for sale, teaches at The Clearing and in his studio, and is an adjunct instructor at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay.
