Roughing, shaping, sanding, finishing… these are the steps required in lathe turning. Shaping is the most fun, involving getting a perfect cylinder, making beads, cutting coves, and turning to a specific diameter with the help of calipers. When to use a gouge, skew, or parting tool for these operations is key. We’ll explain tool use, show you how to properly hold the chisels, and how to manipulate them to shape the spindle.
