Steady Rests

A Steady Rests is wood turning jig which is used to hold the wood from vibrating or moving while you\'re turning it. When used with spindles, they help to stop vibration while making long and/or thin spindles. When used with bowls, they help to turn the inside of very thin bowls. When used with hollow forms, they help hold the vessel while hollowing the interior.
