Last Minute “Easy Wood” Turning
It seems that every year, my wife comes to me at the last minute looking for a gift she can give to a co-worker that she forgot to include in her initial list. Usually “last minute” means 9 PM the night before. I can only blame myself because for the last 5 years I have been able to produce small lathe projects at the 11th hour. Let’s be honest, when you wife asks you to spend time in the shop, who is going to be upset with that?
This year I made some of the usual suspect projects, but now I’m going 100% the Easy Wood Tool route. If you aren’t familiar with these turning tools and you own a lathe, I highly recommend you check them out. I have built almost a complete set of them in the last few years and they have taken a lot of the guess work out of turning for this wood turning hack.
Anyway, here is a sped up version of my latest lathe session (I had to get the video to fit the song)
