Turn a Spindle
The right game plan eliminates troublesome vibration and ensures crisp details
There’s an art to turning a spindle with clean, well-defined details. Peter Galbert breaks down the process into a series of steps: shaping the center details, trimming away excess material, shaping features across the length of the spindle, working toward the tailstock and then toward the headstock. By developing each section in relation to the others, he eliminates vibration and ensures accurate, repeatable results.
