Turning Spindle Turning, or turn between opposite points of wood, is a technique used in wood turning used by many wood turners, particularly those who have been doing the job for some time. Turning Spindle is similar to most other methods in wood turning except in that you will not be moving any wood and will not be using any machinery. This type of turning is more about creativity than mechanics. It is also more effective and economical than other methods and has become more popular in recent years.
In turning a wheel that runs over the wood is placed at the center of the wheel and a spindle attached to the wheel runs across the top of the wood. Spinning the wheel moves the spindle and the wood is turned around it. In addition to the wood the spindle can be made from other materials such as steel or metal. Most types of wood used in this technique come from oak, maple, birch, walnut and cedar.
It is important to make sure that all the pieces of wood are level before starting. After the wood has been put into place, you should use an appropriate amount of oil and let it dry before starting. After all the pieces of wood have dried, you should begin turning the wood round the spindle with a long wooden dowel. As the wood turns the dowel should slide along the spindle and allow it to turn. This technique works best with larger pieces of wood and will take a lot of practice to get the hang of.
After the first few turns it is important to check the turning spindles and adjust them to keep the turning smooth and consistent. By making small adjustments you can achieve the most consistent turning. You may have to make some minor adjustments throughout the process but with enough practice you should have the ability to turn smoothly and consistently. If you feel that the turning of your wood is not as smooth as you would like then you could try changing the type of wood you are using and perhaps add some wood glue or varnish to the wood to give it a bit of stiffness.
The key to turning wood is to make sure that the entire piece is turned evenly and with no gaps. This makes the piece look good. when it is finished.
