Woodturning How to Video – Wood Turn a Segmented Knob on a Wood Lathe

Woodturning How To Video – Wood Turn a Segmented Knob

 

Woodturning how to video - segmented woodturning - turned knob with tenonThis woodturning how to video shows how to wood turn a segmented knob on a wood lathe using basic turning tools. In this woodturning project a parting tool, roughing gouge, and spindle gouge with a fingernail grind were used to wood turn the glue up. The woods used for the glue up were hard maple and African mahogany.

Woodturning how to video - segmented woodturning blockThe YouTube woodturning how to video shows a woodturner tightening the segmented glue up into the lathe chuck and then turning a tenon. The tenon is then reversed and tightened within the lathe chuck so that the woodturner can woodturn the main body. Notice how the designs in wood appear as the woodturning takes shape.

Woodturning how to video - tenonA star pattern of maple emerges in the woodturning how to video as the woodturning project progresses. Watch how the  two laminated woods contrast one another as the woodturner rounds out the knob. Since the star pattern is solid throughout the wooden block, the white tips of the maple star appear as white lines between the arched African mahogany on the outside perimeter of the segmented woodturning.

The woodturner starts with 120 grit and progresses to 320 grit wet & dry sandpaper. Afterwards, the woodturning project is nice and smooth to the touch.

The lathe chuck still has a firm grip on the tenon, the wood lathe is turned on, and the finish is a applied using a paper towel. Only a small amount of the oil finish is necessary for a few reasons. The oil varnish simply goes a long way and the segmented woodturning is small. Also, the woodturner wants to avoid any splatter of oil as it is applied to the woodturning project. For this reason it is still a very good idea to work safe and always wear a faceshield during the application of the wood finish.

Segmented Woodturning…Fruit Bowl

This is segmented woodturning episode – part 2.
Be sure to watch the how to woodturning video: Wood Turning…a Segmented Fruit Bowl…part 1.

Segmented woodturning - Fruit bowl This sequel continues our study to learn of one of the great woodworking crafts, segmented woodturning. In this woodworking video our focus shifts to learn how to woodturn the segmented fruit bowl. We will also be sanding and finishing the fruit bowl that contains 24 segments of which there are 12 staves of light walnut and 12 vertical spacers of dark walnut. Beautiful ribboned mahogany wood is used for the base.

 

Segmented woodturning - Fruit bowl - Taping and gluing the jointsAfter the yellow glue has set-up it is time to remove the masking tape and packing tape from the segmented bowl. (In a fine woodworking project like this it is imperative that all of the wood joints are tight and free of gaps.) It is now time to start turning wood. We begin by mounting the bowl and leveling the bottom of the wall section . Taking the diamond parting tool we will create an interior mortise that will accept the tenon of the mahogany base.

 

Segmented woodturning - Fruit bowl - Mortising the baseNext we will determine the base size.To do this we will measure the outside diameter and the mortise diameter of the bowls sidewalls. From here we will rough cut the base at the band saw allowing for a slightly larger diameter.

After the base is cut on the bandsaw we will mount the base on the wood lathe so that we can turn the tenon to fit the mortise. Again, the diamond parting tool is used to cut the tenon and a dial caliper will gauge the tenon length needed.

Segmented Woodturning - Clamping the Fruit bowlWith the base mounted on the woodturning lathe we will take the segmented assembly and fit the mortise and tenon together. When we have a good fit we will then proceed with the glue-up of the two parts of our segmented woodturning.

After the glue-up dries and the bowl structure is complete it is time for turning wood and shaping the bowl. The segmented woodturning video reveals a spindle gouge with a fingernail grind for much of the interior and exterior wood turning. Other lathe gouges used for this sequence of wood turning include the following: A roughing gouge is used to remove the waste from the base exterior. Also, you will notice round and straight scraper gouges used on occasions as well.

Segmented Woodturning - Fruit bowl on the wood latheAfter the wood turner is finished turning the fruit bowl he will then switch to sandpaper to remove any marks left by the gouge. The wood turner changes to a finer sandpaper grit as he proceeds. Typically, he will take sandpaper sheets and tear then into quarters. He will then tri-fold a quarter sheet and sand with that as the wooden bowl spins on the lathe. This fruit bowl was sanded to 220 grit sandpaper and then burnished with the wood shavings. To prepare the wood project for finishing the bowl was then wiped with a micro-fiber towel to remove any remaining dust. Our segmented woodturning is now ready for applying the protective finish.

The wood finish for the segmented fruit bowl started with an application of SealCoat and finished with three coats of satin Arm-R-Seal. This produced a nice and natural wood finish for the segmented woodturning.

Recommendations for beginning woodworkers: View the segmented woodturning video a multiple times to get a better feel for the procedures. Pay close attention to the different lathe chucks being used at various times to hold the wood. Notice the gouges being used and how they are being used. Be patient and take your time. Always practice safety around the wood lathe. Consider taking a wood turning class to become familiar with this woodcraft.

Setting the blade angle on the 10 inch compound miter saw blade - Segmented Wood Turning on a wood lathe

Segmented wood turning is an interesting and unique facet of the woodworking craft as you will see in part 1 of this woodworking video tutorial. We are back in the woodworking shop creating a custom wood project. Here, we learn how to woodturn a segmented fruit bowl. The wood we are using in this segmented wood turning is light walnut for the staves, dark walnut for the vertical spacers, and ribboned mahogany for the base. The segmented wood turning technique we are using for this wood project involves the use of 12 wood staves that we will cut on the 10 inch compound miter saw and also the 12 vertical spacers we will cut with a small fine toothed dovetail saw. In this woodworking tutorial we will focus on the accurate set-up of the of the compound miter saw using a Wixey digital angle gauge and a digital protractor. Once the saw is correctly set we will cut the wood staves. From there we will concentrate on fitting and gluing all segments together by using yellow glue and masking tape.

“A rule of thumb for a warrior is that he makes his decisions so carefully that nothing that may happen as a result of them can surprise him, much less drain his power.”
Carlos Castaneda…Peruvian born American anthropologist and author. (1925-1998)

Note: To ensure precision cutting of the stave segments a 10 inch Forrest Chopmaster saw blade was used on the compound miter saw.

A Staved segment for segmented wood turning on a wood lathe

Precision cutting of the wood staves is made possible by accurately adjusting the miter saw blade with a digital angle gauge. Accuracy is a must for segmented wood turning and shop accessories such as the angle gauge and a digital protractor are essential.

12…Let’s Turn Salt and Pepper Mills – How to Woodturn

The woodturning video shows step by step the process of how to woodturn salt and pepper mills. Enjoy learning how to turn salt and pepper mills on a wood lathe.

There is something special about wood turning. It is easy to spend hours at this wood craft while working with the various woodturning tools. This particular project features salt and pepper mills of black walnut with a food-safe finish known as Tried and True . This oil finish leaves a soft and warm patina with a nice hand rubbed look and feel.

The material on hand in the shop happened to be 3/4″ black walnut that was left over from another project. In this case the (4) pieces were glued together to create each turning blank by using Titebond II yellow glue. The finished salt and pepper grinders are 2-1/2″ x 8″.

You will notice in the how to woodturn video that a shop made woodworking plan was drawn to full scale and was also used as an aid to layout the turning blanks while the wood lathe was spinning. One of the challenges with this wood project is turning two identical mills. It is a good exercise as it causes one to refer to the plan and also to use the wood turning calipers to measure the necessary diameters. One’s eyes will soon become trained to notice similarities and differences as well when comparing the two mills.

While there is a freedom in the craft of wood turning there is also a need for strategy. It is a bit like playing a game of chess in that one will benefit by planning ahead for your next move. It seems like the more one turns the more comfortable one becomes with the process. The more time you work at the wood lathe, the more you gain a feel and understanding of how to woodturn.

When you decide to turn a set of salt and pepper mills you will be glad that you did as there is a world of difference with freshly ground salt and pepper available for your meals. Your taste buds will celebrate. Also, keep in mind that salt and pepper mills make for wonderful gifts for loved ones on special occasions. Enjoy the process!
