 Woodturning Vases for beginners

Woodturning Vases are perfect for Beginners:

A wood vase is probably the most common project for a wood-turning enthusiast. If you have basic lathe skills and a suitable piece of wood, the right tools and the time it's quite simple. Try any hardwood; the harder the wood the slower you can cut so there is less chance for a big mistake. Pine is soft, so it cuts faster and requires a lighter touch. To start off with an easily shaped vase, try a simple vase without handles. A straight sided vase is far easier to turn. Another good vase to make is bud vase with it bulbous bottom.

1 Select wood several centimeters larger in diameter than the diameter vase you wish to turn. Set the block into the lathe chuck by opening the jaws and locking one end into the chuck. Center the other end on the dead center point in the lathe.

2 Turn on lathe. Set to a slow speed of between 2000 to 5000 rpm or a speed you are comfortable with.

3 Rough out the basic shape of the lathe using a gouge chisel. Cut a general shape that follows the same basic contours of the vase. Use a 25mm chisel for blocks larger than 30cm in diameter, and a 15mm gouging chisel for smaller blocks.

4 Switch to a shaping chisel and begin to cut the final shape of the vase from the roughed out form. Follow the general form, moving the blade deeper into the block at the throat of the vase and then drawing it out away from the center as you move toward the bottom of the vase.

5 Continue to shape the vase with the shaping chisel until your vase's shape is complete.

6 Set the lathe to 1000 rpm and apply sand paper to the surface. Sand away all rough spots.

7 Cut the vase from the block at each end with a hand saw. Apply a stain of your choice with a paint brush or paper towel
