Tom, I'm a member of the Vet's Garage here in Spokane where they teach a variety of skills. The garage also has a woodworking shop where they teach cabinet making, cnc projects and woodturning. On Tuesdays we have a mentor come in for three or four hours to teach, the lathes are available six days a week for open use. Out of all of the things to do at the Vets Garage the lathes are the most popular among the vets, great theraputic turning happens at the garage. Wish we had a Oneway to turn on. I would be happy to connect you with the guys that run the Vet's Garage if you think they would be a resource for you.
