Making handles for your turning tools 1

It’s been a while since I have posted here but it’s so hard to turn and type at the same time. 🙂 I recently had been asked to produce a video on “tips and tricks” for one of r the guilds to which I belong. Once I ad the video in hand it occurred to me that posting it to YouTube for viewing here was the next step.

Please excuse some of the totally irrelevant comments; these were meant for the intended audience, members of the Fraser Valley Woodturners Guild.

This video is the first of three parts dealing with making your own turning handles. The intent of the video was generally about helpful tips so you will see some random tips completely out of context with making handles, but they are nonetheless… helpful.

About Ed Pretty

I am a professional woodturner, specializing in gallery work, commercial work, teaching and demonstrating. I have been turning since 1958, so... a long time. I use this site to present my work to the public at large and to let people know that I am available for teaching private lessons in woodturning. Wood turning is one of my passions (the other is motorcycle touring). It is my desire to pass on everything that I have learned over the years to others so that the craft of woodturning will grow.
