Many flower shapes have a circular design. That also means that they can be turned on the lathe. Many people will also want to carve them after turning!
But however you make them, flowers are something to brighten your day!
|Turning a Tulip|
By: John Wolf
In this photo tutorial, John Wolf shows us how to prepare a stave of lumber and to cut it with a band saw, scroll saw, coping saw or any other similar tool to form the head of the tulip. Then you can mount the blank and turn the tulip to it's final shape. You too can turn beautiful, wood flowers once you see how easy John makes it for you!
|Making Flower Petals|
By: Bill Tilson
In this project, Bill (who has now passed away) shows us how to turn a base and then insert dyed veneer pieces to create a beautiful flower sculpture.
|Turning Wooden Tulips |
By: Steve Reznek
You can easily turn wooden tulips on the lathe that will look life like, have different colors and be the hit in your house. And the best part is that they will not wilt after a week in the house.
By: Mike Leneway
In this short tutorial, Mike shows us how he makes flowers on the lathe using a glued up, multiple wood turning blank. After turning a slight recessed shape, Mike cuts and sands the pedals to their final shape. These are very nice looking flowers and something for you to consider turning.
