Turning Archive 2005
I usually hang out on the Hand Tools forum but I've got the itch to try some turning...and I've never done any before. I am going to make either a treadle lathe or a pole lathe and I am going to need a few tools. I am looking for recommendations (specifically, which profiles).
I see beginners sets with roughing gouges, spindle gouges, skew this and parting that in all different sizes. I am looking to turn a few handles for some tools, a couple of chair legs/spindles, a couple of mallets.
So, where do I start?
Thanks for your help,
