Woodturning Tip of the Day

Remember to dispose of your oil cloths or rags appropriately to avoid spontaneous combustion!

Two of the recommended ways are:
1) Spread the rags out on a non-combustible surface to let them dry before discarding.
2) Submerge the oily rags in water so that they can not catch fire.

There may be other ways that might be better and safer for you. If you're going to use an oil finish, you must develop a safe technique for diposal of your oil cloths.

by ThisWoodwork

In this video, popular young woodturner Alex Harris shows, very simply, the process of inside-out woodturning to make a heart-shaped pendant, which would make a good Valentine's Day gift. Inside-out woodturning is a process of first turning an inside shape onto a turning and then flipping that initial turning inside-out, and then turning the outside profile. This technique can be adapted for more than two pieces.

He shows us examples of carvings on turnings in the following styles: Line Carving, Scalloping, Chip Carving, Low Relief, High Relief and Pierced Carvings.
