Well I have been turning since I was a kid. My father had an old Beaver Tools lathe. I was self taught, which means I had a lot of bad habits, and really did not get good results with my modest turnings.
For years, I never sharpened a single tool. I simply didn’t know as a kid.
Last year, I bought a new lathe from Grizzly, the GO462. Wow, what an upgrade from that old Beaver. (No jokes).
Anyway, knowing that I had no real skill in turning, I went to the library and took out every book I could find on turning. I watched every video I could stomach on YouTube. Read the blogs, and of course turned to the LumberJocks for advise.
Here is a small collection of the results.
Thanks for viewing!
P.S.: Pen turning is very additive!
