Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to acquire a JET 1014vs mini lathe with some tools and accessories. Since getting it back in the shop I’ve made a lathe cart and tool rack. I shot video on those projects but won’t have them out until a week or two from now due to scheduling. In the mean time I’ve been turning scrap wood to get familiar with the turning tools. I also researched and watched a TON of “what not to do with this tool” lathe turning videos and did some slow speed turning to get first hand experience simulating those errors. I’ve found it just as beneficial to learn what not to do as learning what to do with each tool. With some testing experience and a bit of confidence I decided to try and make a few things. These are the results. I don’t have any progress video so I won’t go through the process of explaining each one. I’m just having a blast right now with this new tool and learning a new skill. I’ll be back this Sunday with a normal project video. Take care, Friends.
