Description

Woodturning – growing in popularity and fun to learn! It’s no wonder that woodturning is growing by leaps and bounds. It appeals to time-strapped woodworkers because you can turn out beautifully crafted objects in days rather than weeks and set up shop with minimal tools and materials. To start enjoying this satisfying craft, get Woodturning Basics, an instructional DVD – the perfect introduction to learning the ins and outs of turning. 

Learn as an expert walks you through the basics
. With over 20 years of turning experience, Mike Mahoney provides an informative overview of the techniques you’ll learn and projects you can build after taking this workshop. And, unlike a live class, this DVD allows you to go back any time and review all or any part of the demonstration.

Tools of the trade...tricks of the trade. This DVD answers your questions before you ask them. It familiarizes you with all the key elements of a wood lathe and how to assemble a basic kit of the most-used turning tools. You’ll also learn Mike’s secrets for keeping these tools razor sharp and in proper condition along with must-know techniques for drying and finishing your projects. 

Gorgeous projects you’ll be proud to call your own. Start by learning how to turn the most basic type of bowl to gain experience and confidence. Then move on to more advanced and artistic turning projects, including:

  • A natural-edge bowl that incorporates tree bark

  • A lidded box with perfectly matched grain

  • A stunning memorial urn turned from silver maple

  • An heirloom-quality pepper mill that’s built to last

  • PEN TURNER'S BIBLE

    PEN TURNER'S BIBLE $22.95
    $14.90

    With more than 25 pen projects, using the latest hardware kits on the market, The Pen Turner’s Bible takes the reader from simple ballpoint pen designs on a wood lathe, to complex fountain pen designs on a metal lathe. Pen artist Richard Kleinhenz shares with the reader his unmatched expertise in pen making. From material selection to final finish and each important step between, The Pen Turner’s Bible teaches every aspect of the pen-making craft. The Pen Turner’s Bible is a unique skill-building book that teaches readers how to build and master their own woodworking tools while creating beautiful and useful pens. By tackling these pen-making projects, the reader will quickly develop his or her woodworking skills to a highly advanced level.Beginning with a simple, yet very elegant, ballpoint pen, the steps in the creation of a pen are explained in detail. Subsequent chapters and projects add more complexity, techniques, and tools, teaching readers to progress from basic pen-turning kits to developing their own free designs.These pen-turning projects will also develop the reader’s skills with using and building tools. The Pen Turner’s Bible discusses spiraling jigs past and present, and demonstrates their use on five pens with detailed instructions. A spiral jig allows you how to make the popular rope design, spiral grooved, as well as straight fluted or faceted pens. The metal lathe can do just about everything a wood lathe can, and it can also support a wood lathe with tooling made on it plus allow thread cutting and other operations not easily done on a wood lathe. Kleinhenz also presents his own original designs for unique tools and jigs that the reader can make at home — tools that are as good or better than commercial tools. Throughout The Pen Turner’s Bible, the reader is given more than just a step-by-step process to follow. The author always provides a broader perspective to stimulate creativity so that readers are encouraged to take the techniques beyond the specific instructions, use their imaginations, and make the art their own.Audience: Woodworking home hobbyists.
