Wood turning projects give practice, practice, practice; even the best need to keep up their skills. My intention here is to add a wood turning project from time to time based on what I happen to be turning or upon what people ask. While I have turned other types of ornaments, I decided that my wife might like a pierced ornament for an early Christmas gift. A Wooden Spoon has all the air turning challenges of a spatula coupled with turning an offset handle and carving the bowl.
At the Sharpening Shack we use slow wet-grinding Tormek machines and hi-quality wet stones to sharpen most wood turning tools. We recommend sharpening your wood turning tools when you notice rough surfaces on your work and chips of wood instead of nice clean shavings. Pricing: Most wood turning tools can be sharpened for $6 unless you have large nicks and then we charge according to the cutting width of the tool. Tail stock Drill Chuck: Tailstock drill chucks are used for drilling inserts and can also be used for drilling the hole in your barrels when the barrel is held with a 4 jaw chuck or similar method. A little touch of wood turning history that is still very juseful today, a home made screw chuck can be just the thing for a lot of facepalte turning. A screw chuck is a very old and very handy way to hold a lot of projects such as bowls and platters on a wood turning lathe. My ranking of beginner, intermediate or advanced is so subjective as to be meaningless except to me, but this is my page so I will do it anyway.

For the beginning woodturner and unfortunately for many long time users of a wood turning lathe, sharpening is a necessary evil. Once sharpened your tool can be honed 2 or 3 times before hitting it with a diamond stone or re-sharpening.
It is basically a small cylindrical piece of steel, that is slipped over your insert, then a larger piece of steel tightens around that to hold the part in place. Sandpaper in lots of grits, basic safety gear (safety glasses or shield, dust mask), a drill press for drilling blanks, a band saw for cutting toneboards on a jig, rasp files, a caliper for measuring thicknesses, and many more that you will come across as you delve into call making.
Begin by taking a piece of scrap wood, here about 3" on a side, and gluing it to a glue block, or screwing it to a spare faceplate. The screw chuck is typically used on the wood turning lathe with a pre-drilled hole and the point is not necessary. Sharp tools make for great shavings creating better surfaces on your work, less sanding, and more fun. Dry grinding also tends to produce high-heat caused by dry grinding and can damage the steels temper. While larger tools can be used for making your blank round and basic shaping, finer tools work better for smaller details such as lanyard notches.

These can be custom made for a unique sound or you can purchase a public jig, which will allow you to make your own insert without the hassle of designing your own.
Turning wood with a dull tool is hard work and leaves a lot of work that requires lots and lots of sanding.
Others use larger lathes, metal lathes, and bigger companies use CNC lathes to quickly duplicate calls. You may also want various waxes (automotive work fine) for polishing to a shine after final sanding.
Some people use a jewelers torch for flame polishing acrylic calls, but the same result can be achieved by working your way up through grits of sanding.
