Curtis Turner’s column features an “extremely easy project” on Creating a Stropping Wheel, which is helpful in touching up knives and turning tools. Curtis lets you know the materials you need and gives an overview of the creation process.
Rick Morris has a very helpful step-by-step guide in creating a turned snowman ornament, which then links to two different blog entries on creating a bell-shaped ornament as well as a Christmas tree light ornament.
As an additional feature, Rick has included a two-part video accompaniment to his written article on turning the snowman ornament. So whether you prefer a written step-by-step guide, or watching a video, we’ve got you covered on creating some easy and fun Christmas ornaments for this holiday season!
As a change-up to our normal Show Us Your Woodturning column, Ben Hall has created a video showing off the creation of his turned magic wands. Ben goes through the step-by-step process of this quick turning project and even has his adorable daughter demonstrating how to properly use the magic wand at the end of the video.
Phil Colson has a great time-saving tip on using the Oneway Wolverine Grinding System, which is also one of our featured woodturning products this month, along with the Delta 2MT Live Center.
