    Check oot some of my bowl videos which might help. Usually the chisels I use include a 3/8th” bowl gouge, round nosed scraper and spindle gouge and round nosed scraper. If I am making some ridges I may use a skew but they are not used often in bowl turning.
    You can use a faceplate and friction chucks to hold the work on the lathe as I did in an older video but if you can get a chuck it really helps when turning bowls.

    I may do a video on bowl turning if that helps, Alex.

    ok, i thought so but i wasn’t completely sure. thank you. :D

  7. TeenWoodworker says:

    It turns towards you which means the tool is held onto the rest rather than pushed off it.
    I cannot really explain how to use one in a comment but hopefully you can pick up the various uses a techniques of the tools.

  8. kingkurosaki1 says:

    when you work with a lathe does the wood turn towards you or away from you? is there a specific way to do it? sorry if the question seems stupid but i have never worked with one before but am planning to make one.

    Good stuff mate!
    one thing though, when turning endgrain it’s best to turn from inside out …. Drill a hole and cut from the centre out, this is cutting with supported grain an will give you a much cleaner cut straight from the tool.

    Turning starts @2:50 – you’re welcome. :)

  19. TeenWoodworker says:

    No, it is actually pressure treated pine, I wouldn’t reconmend turning with it, it can have some nasty chemicals in it. Cedar would be nice though!


  20. TeenWoodworker says:

    The lathe I think is what you are asking about?? You can find them online, a number of woodworking or tool suppliers sell them.

  21. TeenWoodworker says:

    Thanks! I always new it couldn’t be great, I actually Haven’t turned pressure treated wood like this in a long time.

    fantastic :) good stuff

  25. pieter13387 says:

    You dont need the best of tools to start off with. I have been wood turning for a bit now and all you really need is a good edge. Good tools dont necessarily make your turning skills any better. Just get a nice Arkansas wet stone and use it to sharpen the tools. Better yet would be to get an 8inch LOW SPEED( 1400rpms or less) bench grinder to sharpen the tools. The sharpness of the tool is all that matters.
