Turning A Crank Handle

posted on

Up till now I haven't used the lathe much. I turned a few pieces of wood for practice. But that was the extent of my wood turning: nothing for a real purpose. When the shopsmith was being moved into the shop, the handle got caught on the trailer and the crank handle broke. I've been planning on trying to make a new handle, but to be honest, the lathe intimidates me.
However, my buddy James is hosting a pen turning challenge on his channel, Stress Free Wood Works. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUj0... 
So I need some practice, I decided this was as good a time as any. And that's what this video is about. You'll see me making some mistakes, but James and Braxton gave me some pointers and helped me out. Thank you guys! Check out Braxton's channel as he has some great project videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9I3...

The pen challenge being hosted by Stress Free Wood Works will be starting soon. This is a great idea that James came up with. The pens will go to our soldiers in the military and let them know we appreciate all they do. And you don't have to have a lathe to enter, there are ways to turn a pen on a drill press, shape it by sanding, etc... The ways to make a pen are numerous. If you'd like to participate and enter the challenge, just follow the link to the video where James gives you the info you'll need. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffiZa...
