    Walker Turner TS on Raleigh CL

    This looks like junk to me, but the "old iron" crowd seems to get a bit glassy-eyed when Walker Turner comes up, so maybe someone will want this: http://raleigh.craigslist.org/tls/2327442683.html

    wana be wood turner

    any tips on starting out turning wood. Pretty much self taught on all the other things I do, but this one is kicking my back side. My tools feel sharp maybe not sharp enough. Maybe oak is the wrong wood to learn on. But just trying to go from square to round is a feat its self. The wood looks...

    NC Turner, take a look at this

    View image in gallery You recently posted a pic of an elm bowl that had a beautiful finish that really appealed to me. This a bowl turned from elm in it's natural state with no finish on it.

    Turner's Slide-Rest, Homemade in Wood

    There are times when I wished I had a cross-slide rest for my wood-lathe, for those special cuts where precise repeatability is wanted, such as cutting an identical, angular groove in several pieces (it is this feature that I need to be able to put "dish" into model wagon-wheels, for example)...
