I just signed my Dad and myself up for a fundamentals of turning at my local Rockler. Having never turned before just recently getting a lathe, learning how to do it correctly is definitely in order. The class is on Sunday, and I'm really looking forward to it.
They have a sharpening class on Saturday, but I can't get away with leaving my wife with our 3 year old for 2 days straight..... So that one will have to wait.
