This is the Turning and Lathe work category of information.

Turn to this page for some helpful advice to put a spin on your woodworking skills. I know...I know...dry humor. :-) I have always been fascinated with the lathe, such beautiful work can be turned out from a blank of wood, especially pens! The ideas are only limited by your imagination really. I do not own a lathe but maybe some day I might pick up a gouge and see what happens. In this woodworking category you will find a list of lather and turner information. Helpful advice and useful tips. There are a couple of pages so make sure you visit the page navigation near the bottom.

by Dave Smith Drying roughed turned bowls has always been a challenge for wood turners. You need to balance the desire to finish a piece as soon as possible with the inherent tendency of wood to warp and split when dried too quickly.

information woodworking resource from WoodCentral - woodworking lathes turnings tools Chatter tool on the cheap 
Everyone wants to try out a chatter tool and once you get one you’ll know why and wonder how you got along without it. However, because they are somewhat expensive you always want to know if you’ll really use it, and if it’s worth the money. Ideally you have a friend who has one and will let you try it. If you don not, then I have a solution to let you try one without any investment.

information woodworking resource from American Woodworker - lathes,chatter,wood turnings,techniques,free woodworking plans,projects,patterns Chatterwork 
Chatter on a spindle occurs naturally when you turn a piece thin enough. My technique takes advantage of this by controlling the cut. Once you learn, you can make symmetrical, chisel-like cuts instead of haphazzard defects.

The Egyptian lathe is based on a stone carving which may be the earliest pictoral representation of a lathe. Artifacts as early as the 7th century B.C. have been found which appear to have marks consistant with having been turned.

information woodworking resource from AroundtheWoods - free woodworking plans projects patterns From fire wood to turning wood. 
One of the first difficulties encountered by a new turner is where to get the wood to turn. Most grab a 2x4, cut it to a 2x2 and turn it round. This gets tired fast. Firewood is available in most communities. It is fairly cheap, hardwood instead of softwood, certainly a lot cheaper than finished, kiln dried boards, and in more suitable shapes for turners. That said the question is what to do with it to prepare it for turning.

by lastole - When I switched the wiring in my lathe motor from 120V to 240V, it bothered me that I could no longer use my 120V surge suppressor. While routinely unplugging the lathe when not in use is not a big deal, my concern was that while I was using the lathe something would happen (lightning or, more likely, a power brownout/spike during the summer months). Here is a rather expensive but simple solution that I chose.
