In this live online woodturning teaching demonstration, I’ll show the making of several small and simple spindle turnings. A honey dipper is an easy start to spindle turning. Learning on a small project helps build confidence. From between centers to using a chuck, I will make a simple pommel for my center punch. A useful item for shop comfort. Using some simple short hollowing tools I will make a shot glass out of a branch. Furthering that concept, I will make a scoop and use a lathe driven sanding disk to shape the scoop. Then I will combine some of these techniques and make a bud vase. Along the way, I will be using several purpose made jam chucks and sanding tools. I will talk about lathe safety and comfort to help alleviate any anxiety while at the lathe. Learn the following:

  • several small projects
  •  safety and confidence at the lathe
  •  stock prep and work holding methods
  •  spindle turning techniques for all skill levels
  •  different tool usage for different cuts
  •  quick and easy on lathe finishing

The run time for this live woodturning even should be 3 hours.
