    Hi Matt,
    It’s a Delta lathe I think it’s early 90s. I bought it used.

    Mr. Jacobson,
    What kind of lathe are you using. I like it because it looks very well made. Maybe case iron. The good stuff.


  5. haydenHD says:

    It’s mineral oil and paste wax.

    Hi Mitch,

    Yes, that was the message I sent. This is the only mirror I have made. I would love to see some pictures and you can email them to me at

    I look forward to seeing them.

    Carl Yes , If you mean the message where you showed me the purse mirror you turned. Very nice work I would say. I wrote a reply a couple times and whatever is happening it doesn’t post. I wanted to ask you if you turned hand held mirrors and also the purse mirrors.I wanted to send you a picture for your opinion but guess I can’t do that.I don’t know how you feel about sending pictures e-mail Thanks Mitch

    Hi Mitch,

    Did you receive my message with the video attached? No worries, we were all new at one time.

  10. Mitterxyz says:

    I am new here on You Tube and am confused. What did you attach to the video. Did you get my message about e-mailing me? Mitch

  11. haydenHD says:

    Hi Mitch, I attached it to this video.

  12. Mitterxyz says:

    @MitterxyzWas wondering if you ever turned any hand held mirrors? Mitch

  13. haydenHD says:

    Thanks Mitch,

    That is a great idea.


  14. Mitterxyz says:

    Nice birdhouse. I was into making them for quite a while couple years ago but used to hollow out the insides instead of a Forestner bit. Put a tenon on both ends of the stock and separate like you did on the small boxes you turned then hollow the top and the bottom.
    , glue roof to bottom Nice job Mitch

    Thanks for the comments!
    The camera I use is a Panasonic Lumix model DMC-ZS3.


  16. BradburyGuy says:

    Hey Carl, I love watching you turn, and the creative freedom you use with some of your tools. I’ve never seen anyone use a parting tool for some of the applications that you do, but it’s very effective. Good inspiration—Thanks!
    One more thing, would you mind telling me the brand and model of the camera you use. Picture Quality is pristine!

  17. haydenHD says:

    Hi, It’s paste wax and mineral oil.The sandpaper is cloth back.

  18. MegaWoodcrafter says:

    That was pretty quick. I like it. What kind of wax are you using? And is that wet dry sandpaper or just regular? I apologize for all the questions, I am new to turning and loving it and wanting to learn all I can. thanks.

  19. haydenHD says:

    It’s a nice tool it will save you a lot of time.

  20. TheFishingschool says:

  22. TheFishingschool says:
