Like most woodworking projects, before you can get to the final result, prep work and jigs play an important role, before the actual turning process begins. The biggest attribute to lathe turning is that finished results can typically be attained faster with almost instant gratification. This WoodRiver Pen Drilling Vise with 7mm Drill Guide & Stop Collar combo aids in that process for the prep work, especially for the novice turner, or those who may not have a drill press to begin the wood turning creative adventure.
On this edition of Woodworking Adventures, I sat down with Carl & Robin Jacobson at our Woodcraft Vendor Trade Show. We shared some lathe time while talking about their woodworking life together at home and on the road in their mobile shop…. up next…. on Woodcraft’s Woodworking Adventures.
