Tips for the Novice Woodturner Photo Courtesy of Oneway Manufacturing Choose clear, straight grained, soft wood like pine, alder or poplar to practice with before moving on to harder and irregularly grained wood.
Instead of using a bandsaw to trim rough stock to an octagonal shape before mounting it on the lathe - enhance your tool skills by using a roughing out gouge to turn square stock to round.Use a spindle gouge and slow lathe speed to further shape your stock once it's been rounded.
To turn bowls, mount the stock with grain running lengthwise.Get to know your tools.Gouge and round nose tools cut flat and concave surfaces; skews shape convex and flat surfaces; and on bowls use a bowl turning gouge.
Generally, turn larger diameters first, working from the top to bottom of a bead, and from the outside to the center of a bowl.Skew chisels (above) are widely used for spindle work.These versatile tools are ideal for planing smooth surfaces, cutting V-grooves, forming beads, and facing off the end of cylinders.
