|Bowl turning is normally performed at the swivel rest side of the lathe (see below). This is because the lathe operator uses a gouge to remove wood along the ‘blanks’ length, forming the external shape and to a depth, forming the internal shape. Working on a blank at the ‘end’ of the lathe, makes this process easier and safer.|
|WOOD TURNING USING A FACEPLATE|
|A faceplate is used to
securely hold a ‘blank’ piece of wood, so that it can be turned into a
product such as a bowl.
All wood turning requires training by an instructor, as lathes can be extremely dangerous if misused.
