Master Classes by Glenn Lucas
at The ToolPost

February 2011 brings the opportunity for the woodturning community to witness one of its masters in action. Glenn Lucas will be offering two one-day masterclasses at the UK's hub for turners and carvers, The ToolPost in Didcot, Oxfordshire ( These classes will take place on Saturday February 5th and Monday February 7th 2011. Early booking is essential as attendee places are limited to ensure maximum contact between participants and this popular "Irish Maestro of Woodturning".

Glenn's popularity is a result of his remarkable skills in turning and sharpening and also thanks to his talent as a demonstrator. His knowledge of woodturning is matched by his infectious passion for the craft; this, combined with his naturally affable and relaxed manner, makes for an excellent woodturning demonstrator, both in person and in his newly released DVD 'Mastering Woodturning - Tools & Techniques.

The ToolPost has been admiring Glenn's turning talents for many years and has been happily recommending his excellent DVD to customers. Therefore it is with great excitement that The ToolPost hosts two masterclasses with "the Maestro" himself. Saturday February 5th, 2011 will see Glenn presenting his one-day Hands-On Sharpening Clinic for Woodturners at The ToolPost store, sharing his invaluable tips on superior tool sharpening, showing how to create the best cutting edge possible and demonstrating why a particular sharpening form is preferred. On Monday February 7th, 2011, Glenn will present a one-day Faceplate Turning Masterclass, an opportunity for four lucky woodturners to learn, in a hands-on fashion, the inside secrets of creating beautiful bowls and platters.

The ToolPost is the home of the UK's best woodcarving and woodturning tools and it regularly hosts Open Days which showcase some of the finest talents of turning and carving from around the world.
