by

Conquer the learning curve from furniture maker to competent wood turner with this no-nonsense guide by chair maker Peter Galbert. In this first of two articles, you'll learn how to turn a basic cylinder and add tapers and tenons. Along the way, you will pick up tips that Galbert wishes he'd known when he started out, particularly things like how to hold the tool and move your body for clean cuts. Master the basics here, including which four tools you need to get started.
