Woodturning is said to be the safest form of woodworking, that said it can still be dangerous and care should be taken at all times

The methods and procedures I show here are what I do at the moment and feel safe doing, I am not suggesting that you should do things the same way, that is up to you, if you don’t feel safe doing it one way find another way of doing it.

Above all take care and remember if this is your hobby it is supposed to be fun so enjoy it.

Now sand and finish this part of the apple.


Now put your screw chuck in the chuck and mount the apple brining up the tail stock for support.


Now turn the bottom profile leaving the tail stock in position as long as possible.   The reason for the tail stock is that the screws at this size can be a bit weak so the extra support of the tail stock helps to stop them breaking.   Again make a dimple in the bottom to take the clove.


Now sand and finish the apple and remove from the screw chuck.
