Sample text

Slight ribbing is not considered a major flaw and can be sanded away easily. Deep ribbing is a major flaw that often happens on long narrow stock. Usually the cause can be traced to the tool bouncing in and out of the cut or the wood flexing. A dull tool contributes to both causes, so keep the skew sharp. To steady the flexing wood, many professionals use a hand on the backside of the wood (Photo 11). If you are not comfortable with this approach, try an overhand grip while applying downward pressure to the tool rest (Photo 12).

Woods that contain high amounts of tannic acid (such as white and red oak, cherry and walnut) can be ebonized by brushing on an acidic solution of iron and water. Depending on the species, the black color that results is likely to contain shades of brown, red or green. The coloring is usually uniform and consistent, without the blotching that sometimes occurs with oil-based wood stains. On oak and other woods that have large pores, the effect is particularly striking because the pores usually remain light in color.

Critical Concerns Always keep three rules in mind whenever you use a chuck (see “Three Principles of Chucking,” above). Safety: Turning’s first principle is to keep the work on the lathe. Using the wrong chuck or improperly mounting a blank can lead to disaster. Countless pieces have been damaged or destroyed and far too many turners seriously injured—some even fatally—by a chucking failure. Above all, remember that no chuck is 100 percent reliable. Therefore, when using a chuck, it’s imperative to wear a full face shield that’s ANSI-rated Z87+ (see Sources).
