Elevate your woodworking repertoire with essential woodturning techniques and create a stunning multi-axis vessel youll be proud to show off!
Create an eye-catching and deceptively simple multi-axis vessel! Get the chips flying with professional woodturner and instructor Michael Roper as you master offset measuring and learn how to safely turn a spindle. Michael will walk you through mounting your second axis, showing you how to make air cuts and secure your vessel into a four-jaw chuck. Then, use a Forstner drill bit to remove wood in the center of your piece and carefully shape the neck. Learn expert hollowing techniques, such as how to use a straight cutter for bulk material removal. Next, find out how to use a bent cutter to clean up the shoulder, and make a caliber to test for wall thickness to avoid punching through! Finally, work with your lathe to create a reverse jam chuck and finish your elegant piece by blending cuts and sanding your vessel for a smooth-as-silk result. Youll even find out how to create a round-bottom variation of this remarkable vessel.
