Woodturning is an art and a very nice hobby. The term woodturning refers to a kind of woodworking, which is used to create beautiful wooden objects on a lathe machine. Woodturning is different from other woodworking techniques as woodturning involves the moving of a piece of wood on stationed machine or tool to cut and shape it. A woodturning artist can turn a piece of wood into many tricky shapes and design with woodturning tools and machines.

Anyone can take up the woodturning hobby. For starters, they need to join a woodturning club to acquire knowledge from other members. Then attend a woodturning workshop. And finally attend a workshop of any local woodturning store near you. However, to start woodturning by yourself, you will need some of the basic tools and materials. Let us see what tools and materials are needed for woodturning.

Lathe Machine: lathe machine is the basic machine that is essential for woodturning. You can buy a brand new lathe machine for woodturning in Australia somewhere around $250 to $11000. It all depends on which wood project you would be working on. If you were to be working for woodturning supplies like pens and kitchen cutlery or if you are limited with space, then a small lathe machine could be ideal for you. If you wish to turn large wood objects and no bar for space then opt of bigger lathe machine.

Woodturning Materials: there are several types of woodturning tools and material available that are generally made-up of stainless steel, high speed steel, carbon steel and powdered metal. The most common types of tools used for woodturning are roughing gouge, bowl gouge, detail gouge, parting tool, skew chisel, hollowing tool, bowl saver, scraper, chatter tool, wire, auger (kind of drilling device), and several other special purpose tools. Start with only those tools and materials that you can handle and once you’re proficient with a particular tool, start adding other equipments into your tools set. These woodturning tools and materials can be purchased from a local woodturning suppliers in Australia or from specialize woodturning suppliers online.

Wood: the most essential ingredient for woodturning can be obtained from a lumberyard stock or can be purchased from an online wood supplying store. They can offer variety of wood ranging from soft to hard wood. With this wood you can create many types of woodturning items such as baseball bats, kitchen cutlery, salt and pepper grinders, letter openers, acrylic pen blanks, and much more.

Generally woodturning can be considered as a safe hobby provided that you follow all the safety measures. Whenever working on any woodturning project, ensure that you have all the protective gears on such as eye protection visors, ear protection gear, mask to avoid inhalation of wood dust, hand protection gloves and foot protection boots.
