Woodturning Tip of the Day

Bowl Turning

Always work "downhill" - turn larger diameters first, work from top to bottom of the bead, and the outside of the bowl to the center. This helps eliminate chatter that develops in long slender turnings. Don't let your chisel move off the tool rest; keeping the tool rest centered at the area being cut solves this problem. Since the tool rest is the fulcrum for your chisel, keep it within 1/8" of the stock, even if it means extending one end inside a bowl. When scraping, place the rest near the centerline of the diameter of the turning stock. For shearing, raise the rest to where you feel most comfortable. A good rule of thumb in shearing is to raise the toolrest slightly above the centerline of the stock.

Featured Turning Project

The Toy Soldier's Wife
by Dennis Daudelin

In this project tutorial, I show you how I turned a piece of 2x4x8 construction lumber for our annual club meeting. The toy soldier's wife was turned to match the toy soldier that I had turned earlier. The turning is over 1 foot tall and has multiple parts making for an interesting turning. It was also painted with acrylic paint to complete the design. 

This tutorial was originally published in More Woodturning Magazine in the May 2017 edition.
