Eric Gorges, host of A Craftsman’s Legacy is a wonderful craftsman but didn’t know much about turning wood. So, he headed to his local Woodcraft Store to pick up the tools and knowledge he would need to get started.
This video is a firsthand look into buying a new lathe and making your first bowl. The good, the bad and ugly. It’s all in the mix.
You won’t want to miss out on watching him struggle to get the chuck off the spindle! In the end, Eric learned a lot, made something he was really happy with, and can officially call himself a woodturner.
