BOWLS, MILLS, BOXES, SPINDLES AND PLATTERS
“I use the wood lathe with hand-held tools to cut a shape that is symmetrical around the axis of rotation.”
I make bowls, pepper mills, goblets, boxes, spindles, platters using this wood turning technique. The nature of wood defines wood turning techniques. The orientation of the wood grain, relative to the axis of the lathe, affects the tools and techniques used.
