Woodworking expert George Vondriska teaches you how to properly prepare, mount and cut soapstone blanks on the lathe in your workshop. When cutting soapstone, because it is a soft material that tends to give off lots of dust when sanded, he shows how to effectively and safely shape the blank by using hard metal scrapers and a vacuum source.
