Below are some step by step plans that I have written up for projects that I have demonstrated at wood turning meetings. You may use these at your own risk. If you are not comfortable or do not feel the project is safe, then do not try it. Always wear protective gear when turning, especially a full face mask designed for wood turning. I have had my share of unexpected events at the lathe, usually when the wood doesn't behave as I think it will. A face mask has saved my eyes and kept me away from the hospital on several occasions. Multi-axis turnings have more inherent risk of mishaps than typical single axis turnings, so turn safely and if it doesn't feel right, then don't do it. Turning should be fun, not scary or risky.
