Woodturning 101 - Video 3 - Turning a Twig Pot

The twig pot is a project that emphasizes proper proportion and symmetry along with the skills it takes to create it. In the twig pot video, you’ll learn how to incorporate a series of “ogee” curves to create an overall symmetrical look that’s nicely shaped and pleasing to look at.

In this video, you’ll see how to properly use the spindle gouge, roughing gouge, skew chisel, and parting tool. Drilling the hole for the glass vial with a No. 2 MT drill bit, creating a tapered neck, and installing the vial are also covered.

Every year aspiring woodturners attend our Woodturning 101 Workshop to learn the fundamentals that they need to be successful and have fun woodturning at home.

In our Woodturning 101 Workshop Video Series, you can see and enjoy every demonstration just as it takes place during the workshop. In all, there are 8 project demonstrations and one sharpening demo. Here on our blog, you can see them all for free.

Stay tuned as we roll our Woodturning 101 Workshop project demonstration videos during the coming weeks. It’s the next best thing to being here at Craft Supplies USA.
