DIY- Christmas Ornament Project with John Nicholas of Make ICT

Good Day Kansas

We had such a great time at Make ICT today! John Nicholas, South Kansas Woodturners President and Member of Make ICT welcomed us in to learn to use the wood lathe and get a bit creative this holiday season.

John is a pro and has been rounding wood for years. He took a moment to show some of the intricate items he as made over the years and we were blown away at the sight of them! We would’ve sworn they were store bought and manufactured by a large staffed company. Much to our surprise John is a skilled woodworker who is comfortable on a lathe and can turn a piece of wood into just about anything!

Today, John showed us how to make our very own Christmas ornament. There were some very general and easy tasks and others that were much more difficult that we let John take care of for us. We were really intrigued by the spinning wood and all you could do to manipulate it with tools, speed and tension. John and the team at Make ICT offer ornament making classes where you will be walked through each step to learn the process of making your very own ornament. We had a great time learning from John.
