Woodturning: Four Things to Consider when Creating Woodturning Projects

Four things to consider when you want to create your own woodturning projects.

Any new hobby needs to be interesting. This is because a beginning project may have to be done over and over in order to get it just right. Repeating the project will help to develop and refine the woodturning skills and a beginner will remain with a hobby if it maintains its interest.

There are a few ways to maintain interest with a woodturning project. One way is the learning of new skills that will help hold interest.

A lot of woodturning projects are one-of-a-kind because of the decorations that each person will add to their project. This would include deliberate burn marks, beads, coves, and grooves in the project. Each of these embellishments constitutes a new learning experience in itself.

Another way to maintain interest in woodturning projects is to make several of the same items with the idea of giving them to friends and family as gifts.

The next basic thing to remember is that woodturning projects must be instructive and teach at least one or two new skills. You may have existing skills at woodturning projects but you want to build those skills to gain confidence in working with new tools. Some examples of beginning woodturning tools would be the lathe, a roughing gouge, parting tools, and spindle gouges. With these basic woodturning tools, you'll learn to turn square wood into round spindles.

New woodturning projects also include shaping with straight lines, adding beads and coves, as well as learning to cut to a particular diameter and learning to part off the finished project. You'll want to be very proficient at these basic skills as they are the beginning of any fine woodturning project.

Everyone would agree that any new hobby should be inexpensive for a lot of reasons and woodturning projects are no exception. Beginning wood turned projects should be made of cheap or even free wood. Expensive wood means an expensive project and that may not always be suitable for the beginner with woodturning projects. Plain old firewood makes the best turning squares that are extremely suitable for many beginning projects.

Other items that are used for decorations on your woodturning projects should be inexpensive as well. You can find cheap items like copper pipe sections for handle ferrules or even tea lights.

The fourth criterion for woodturning projects is that they should be quick to do. The reason for this is you really just want to be able to develop some new skill in using the wood lathe and other basic tools. If the woodturning projects are quick to produce, then you can compare them to side-by-side to see if improvements are being met.

One of the easiest repeat woodturning projects with the quick results desired is a basic file handle. This is because a file handle can be made with all of the basic tools quickly and the lines are simple to produce. Just some of the firewood you have handy works great for this woodturning project. If you do decide to add any embellishment to this project, you can create a ferrule out of scrap pieces of pipe. What great woodworker can't use another file handle?
