|How to Turn a Wooden Egg|
By: Alex Elias
In this great photo tutorial, Alex shows us the step by step processes to turn a life-sized wooden egg. He also shows us how to make templates that are needed to get a consistent size and shape and how to make a Wooden Egg Chuck to hold the egg concentrically while turning the ends.
Turning eggs is much harder than it would appear at first blush. So, Alex's tutorial really is helpful in insuring a good egg shape and a consistent size.
