Nutcracker

 

Producing a Pleasing Platter - The Journey...Producing a Pleasing Platter - The Journey...
By: Bob Heltman
Funny how one thing leads to another. First came a terrible ice storm this past winter that dropped a BIG maple tree across my driveway. This catastrophe did, however, produce some great turning blanks. When storms don't hurt anybody, they are a woodturner's very good friend, if the truth be known.

In this tutorial, Bob shows us how to turn a pair of wooden nut crackers that use threaded shafts to create the pressure needed to crack a nut. This is a very detailed step-by-step set of instructions and the results are pretty incredible.

 

Turn a Nutcracker BowlTurn a Nutcracker Bowl
By: Gordon Langer
In this photo tutorial, production turner Gord Langer shows us how he goes about turning a nutcracker bowl. He purchases the nutcracker mechanism and then turns a bowl to fasten it. In this project, he also turns a very large bowl so that the shells from the nuts have a place to go.

This is a fun project and one that is sure to be popular as a gift or even in your own home!
