Wood Turning

Woodturning – Handmade Wooden Penguins

I turned and carved these wooden penguins. I first turned them on the lathe between centers, before turning one end off center. With the band saw I rough cut the beak shape before using the Arbortech mini turbo to refine the shape. After taping the front part with masking tape I painted them with a airbrush. The final step was to finish them with two coats of clear lacquer.

Woodturning – Wooden Maple Leaf Turned And Airbrushed

In this video I turned a shallow dish on the lathe and found a Maple leaf in the yard to use as a template. After using a pencil to trace around the leaf I cut it out with a scroll saw. I then used a airbrush to embellish it with wood dye
