  1. Put a chicken on the lathe and use it as a rotisserie. yum.

  2. Excellent Tutorial Thank you for sharing 🙂 Just getting into Carpentry
    myself. Can’t wait to get my own lathe at home! 

  3. That was an excellent video! I’m a new wood turner just learning to
    properly use the bowl gouge, spindle and scraper. This really made some
    key points that are important to remember (i.e., setting the bevel and then
    rolling to the cutting edge, cutting only “down hill.” Well done. Now fer
    those derned chickens!

  4. Which lathe were you using? 

  5. Great video, thank you. You just get after it and run through the different
    tools and techniques in under eight minutes. In a lot of the other videos
    the guy spends the first eight minutes talking, makes a cut, then spends
    another eight minutes talking. I know philosophy is important, but right
    now I just want to know how to use each tool, and this video nails it. That
    chicken at the end had me chuckling.

  6. This video was a big help to me, thanks for making it.

  7. Thanks for sharing this video I just bought a really nice Rikon midi lathe
    and have wanted to turn wood for a long time. I really appreciate the time
    you put into this!

  8. Great video! Thanks!

  9. +Scott Wartenberg looks like a delta

  10. Awesome content! Very straight forward and basic. Exactly what I was
    looking for, just got my first cheap lathe and had NO CLUE where to start.
    This was a great first step. Thanks

  11. HELLO CURTIS JUST WANTED TO SAY HELLO, I PRAY ALL IS WELL WITH YOU.♡♡♡

  12. Thanks Guy, this is good for us “self taught” woodturners who did not learn
    the correct basics!

  13. I’m starting to learn wood turning. Good info for people like me who learn
    from teachers like you from youtube.
    Thanks Mr Bradbury. With shaky hands you still managed to turn the wood
    smoothly. BTW why the shaky hands if I may ask.
    Thanks.

  14. +djebat88 Thanks for watching. I will be remaking this video soon with a
    much better camera and more detailed information. I recently finished my
    new shop in Kalama Wa. Looking forward to doing more videos after two years
    without a shop. Here is a link to my Shop Renovation Video.

  15. One of the simplest way to build your own woodworking is to take full
    advantage of woodworking gurus, with out learn through trial and error like
    them before!

  16. I’d love to hear what you’re saying, but the background music drowns you
    out.

  17. Thanks for watching, David. This is one of my oldest and technically one of
    the worst videos I have made. Because of it’s popularity I have decided to
    make it over with much better equipment and include more information. I am
    currently finishing a new shop. Soon I will be making more videos. Here is
    a link to my Shop Renovation Video.

  18. , Guy! Just bought a wood lathe and you helped me to know what some of the
    basics area. Great job!

  19. Thanks for the video Guy. I know my way round a joinery workshop, but just
    got my first lathe. Have wanted to turn for years. At the venerable age of
    65, I am just starting, and your video gave me the advice I needed. I hail
    from England, by the way.

  20. Thanks for the vid! Very informative !

  21. Thanks so much for watching, Steven. Sorry about the video quality.
    Definitely time for a re-make on this one!

  22. So glad I could be helpful Paul, and so glad you suffered through a video
    of such terrible quality. I will be up-dating this one.

  23. Thanks Much, Jim, Jan, and Bobby. Glad you guys are watching.

  24. +Guy Bradbury know where I could buy one

  25. Best instructional wood turning video that I’ve come across so far, I
    include the fact that he is informing and not talking at people

  26. Thanks so much for watching, Paul. This is one of my oldest and technically
    one of the worst videos I have made (bad camera). Because of it’s
    popularity I have decided to make it over with much better equipment and
    include more information. I am currently finishing a new shop. Soon I will
    be making more videos. Here is a link to my Shop Renovation Video.

  27. Guy, you are more than welcome. Keep up the good work and don’t change your
    style of teaching!

  28. Something I’ll watch again. Bought a HF lathe and built a higher stand for
    it. Good thing too, Been diagnosed with Arthritis in my neck bones. Now I
    don’t have to look so far down. One of my projects is to make feet for 6 ft
    tarp poles from steel electrical conduit and plugs for the top of the poles
    to hold a bolt where the tarp rings go over. I plan to use TX lumber (TX =
    treated).
