    Thank you very much.

    Fantastic turning – love what you do with a lathe. Its artistry like this that I aspire to. Keep the videos coming.

  3. MrTyleryates says:

    What are the dimensions of the started block? would I be able to do this with just a faceplate?

    Also, if you search for “Gwinnett Woodworkers Association” on Youtube, and then look for Mike Peace’s video on winged box’s in their listings, you’ll see what I mean. That is where I learned to cut them, though I have given a few my own distinct touches.

    Again, nice work and nice videos. You do have some really neat ideas for sure!

  5. kenny474 says:

    Good job.

    I personally like them with the sides of the wing a consistent thickness on the entire side, rather than getting so fat where the bowl portion is. Just a nicer, cleaner look in my opinion. Also gives the bowl a more defined line.

    If you have an email I can send you some pics of mine, though the nicer pieces were given as X-Mas gifts, but I still have a couple kicking around waiting for lids and finish.

    Spin it faster (2400-3000rpms) and take very light cuts with a VERY sharp tool. I use a fingernail grind spindle gouge (1/4″ flute) and a 1/4″ Ellsworth grind bowl gouge. I avoid scrapers, as I find they are more prone to chipping on these.

    Remember, speed is your friend when dealing with interrupted cuts.

  7. haydenHD says:

    I use it to cut down on the dust and it give you a nice satin finish. You can use a metal lathe to turn wood but you will need to get a tool rest and wood chisels. make sure the RPMs are high enough.

    Oh wow, super quick reply hehe, thanks. What are the benefits of the wax oil mixture?
    I am trying to purchase a lathe now but for metal work. Can you turn wood in a lathe made for metal working? Was thinking maybe I could just purchase a chuck head for wood working but I am not sure if the speeds will work. Thanks again and gorgeous work btw.

  9. haydenHD says:

    It is a combination of mineral oil and paste wax. 10 parts paste wax and 1 part mineral oil.
    You can find both of these on my website.

  10. brewerbrian420 says:

    Might be a silly question but, what is the stuff your putting on the sandpaper?

  11. haydenHD says:

    I would try a hard wood like maple you can get a nice clean cut.

  12. kniggette87 says:

    exactly. I thought it was just that my tools were not sharp enough, but even after sharpening, still had large chips seeming to splinter off.

  13. haydenHD says:

    By splintering you mean your not getting a clean cut?

  14. kniggette87 says:

    I wanted to ask…how do you keep the wings from splintering? I tried something very similar using Tulip wood, but the wood splintered on the wings requiring me to sand them clean.

    Love all the videos. Gives lots of inspiration.

  15. jwolf2655 says:

    Quick question. I just started turning, I have a few that blow apart when almost finished, is this from trying to take too much off at a time? The walls of my bowl is about 3/8 or a little less. Was my second attempt but is frustrating!! thanks!

  16. firemanek1 says:

    Can someone tell me what this wood is ventures?, Or some sort of paste wax?

  17. haydenHD says:

    Thank you,

  18. firemanek1 says:

    Może ktoś powiedzieć, czym to drewno jest zapuszczane?, czy to jakaś pasta woskowa?

  19. haydenHD says:

    There 1 1/2″ I have them jump out some times to.

  20. Buzzsawman says:

    Carl when you make a tennon on the end of a project to hold in the jaws of your chuck…how long do you make that tennon…I have a nova chuck and can’t seem to get it to hold tight enough…my chisels are razor sharp so I know it can’t be that…but I always seem to have my projects jump out of the chuck

  21. haydenHD says:

    I’ll have to find the manual I can’t remember.

  22. prnyus61 says:

    What model Delta is that you’re using?  I have a 46 701 but your seems to be a different model.

  23. mojoeshaw says:

    Thank you Carl. I am fast becoming one of your biggest fans. I just started watching a few weeks ago and am wanting to integrate a lot of natural materials in the plans for a new home. I have a lot of ideas, thanks to you and a few other furniture builders, that can integrate turning and building furniture. Thanks again and I can’t wait to see your future projects.

  24. haydenHD says:

    I’ll work on it for next month I have a few more projects to do this month. I was thinking a glue up might work.

    Thank you,

  25. mojoeshaw says:

    Hi Carl. Great videos by the way. I’m really getting excited about wood turning and I have a project I would love to see demonstrated before I attempt it. I love to cook as do a lot more people nowadays and I was wondering if you could show me how to make some boxes for flour, sugar, coffee, tea and other things in a decreasing size. I used to love the traditional style but I’m curious to see your take on this and how to get that tight fit plus make it fit for holding food products.
