Question by K.J.: Woodworking teacher asks: What age are kids ready to learn woodturning on the lathe?
I teach kids between the ages of 9 and 14. Our shop received a donation of a small lathe and some pen kits. The older kids have a few years of experience in my shop, building small furniture out of 1x pine, and using machines such as the drill press, band saw, chop saw and disc sander. Once they master those skills, do you think 12-14 year old kids can safely use the lathe under supervision?
Answer by f100_supersabre
I have seen kids as young as 8 SAFELY use a wood lathe, having watched their parent(s) use one for “home” projects.
They learn by WATCHING.
I knew one who made some beautiful wood bowls that he sold at local craft fairs.
(His father was a professional woodworker.)
