I have begun activities to regenerate trees that have been cut down for various reasons.
All the logs I use are scraps.
In most cases, collect the cuttable pieces and give them to a recycler.
The video shows a scene making a red goblet from a tree branch.
Very advanced design work has been completed, so I’m glad to see it to the end!
Wood turning is the craft of using a wood lathe with hand tools to cut a symmetrical shape around the axis of rotation. Like the potter’s wheel, a wood lathe is a simple mechanism that can produce a variety of forms. The operator is known as a turner, and the skills required to operate the tools were traditionally known as turning. In pre-industrial England, these skills were difficult enough to be known as the “mystery” of the turners’ guild. The ability to use tools by hand without a fixed point of contact with wood separates the woodworking and woodworking lathe from the machinist lathe or metalwork lathe.
Parts made on the lathe include handles, candlesticks, ovaries, knobs, lamps, rollers, cylindrical boxes, Christmas decorations, trunks, knitting needles, needle boxes, thimbles, pens, chessmen, spinning tops; feet, shafts and pegs for furniture; balustrades and newel posts for architecture; hollow forms such as baseball bats, wind instruments, vases, sculptures; bowls, plates and chair seats. Industrial manufacturing has replaced many of these products in the traditional turning shop. However, wood lathe is still used for decentralized production of limited or special lathes. A skilled turner can produce a wide variety of objects with five or six simple tools. The tools can be easily reconfigured for the task at hand.
In many parts of the world, lathe has been a portable tool that goes to the welding wood or adapts to temporary work areas. Twenty-first century acres are restoring furniture, continuing folk art traditions, producing exclusive architectural works and creating fine crafts for galleries. Woodturning appeals to people who like to work with their hands, enjoy problem solving, or enjoy the tactile and visual properties of wood.
