Woodturning Tip of the Day

Making Circle Templates for Bowl Blanks

Use a compass to mark out cardboard circles which can then be cut with scissors. I highlight the center point with a magic marker to make it stand out.

You can also use hardboard or plywood but I like the cardboard because occasionally I will hit it with the band saw. They are cheap and easy to replace. I have a set with one inch increments from 4" to 16".

Featured Turning Video

Wood Stem Wine Glass with Turquoise Inlay
by Kevin Felderhoff

Before you know it, Mother's Day will be here. We wanted to select a video this month that would allow you to start early in making this project as a Mother's Day gift.

In this video, Kevin Felderhoff makes walnut wood-stemmed wine glasses with turquoise inlays. He uses standard wine glasses and cuts off the stems leaving a small stub which can be glued into the wood stem. This is an easy project that will make someone special happy.

As we approach summer (in the northern hemisphere), many of us may use koozie's to help keep our water bottles cool. Making a wooden koozie is a perfect project for woodturners. The koozies can be made to hold cans or bottles and 12 oz or 16 oz sizes.

And yes, you can use it for your soda or beer.
