Pen Kits & Turning Projects
As with any craft, woodturning demands a strong foundation in the basics: properties of wood, tools and techniques, and design considerations. Building on this knowledge allows you to express your creativity in a great variety of ways. One of the best features of turning is the opportunity to gain enough know-how in short order to create finished projects in just a few hours. Lathes enable woodworkers to complete, including finish, many worthwhile projects inside a single evening using nothing more than a stick of wood. Short of driving nails in a plank and then nailing the plank to the wall to hold coats and sweaters, there's nothing much else out there that allows shorter times from start to finish in woodworking projects. And the best part is, the projects are both attractive and purposeful — or can be!
