Improper use of a roughing gouge on end grain. I’m new to turning and found out after the fact that spindle roughing gouge and a roughing gouge are not two different types of tools. In this week’s video, you will see that I use the roughing gouge successfully on end grain, mostly as a scraper.

The last of the fancy exotic wood from amazon, Lacewood. I believe, after some research on the Wood Database site, this particular piece of lacewood is Leopard Wood. The unfortunate thing is it had a crack. So, a bowl turned into a tea light holder.

This was a lot of fun making the curves of the wood on the WEN model 3420t lathe. I am starting to feel the urge to upgrade, is it too soon for that? Well, I really can’t afford a “bigger” lathe just yet, which means it’ll have to wait.
