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.

With the tailstock still in place I turn the top to its final size and start on the stem.

I now remove the tailstock and turn the finial.

I now turn the rest of the item to its final size and shape.

I now sand and finish the item, during the sanding and also before applying a finish I run the drill through the 20 holes again by hand to clean them out.

You now have a finished item which will make a nice gift or a good seller at a craft show.   The size of the item, the design of it and how many holes you have for earrings is entirely up to you.
