Making a Finishing Turntable
By Curtis Turner
Round Rock, TX
Here's a simple shop improvement project that is making my life much easier when applying finish to one of my completed turnings. It's a Lazy Susan that allows me to easily rotate a project so I can apply the finish uniformly on all sides. (I'll also include an extra tip that simplifies
sanding a workpiece before applying finish).

Custom Oneway Lathe
By Tom Soles
When I retired in 2001 I started to look for that perfect setup that would allow me to turn very
large bowls. After looking for 9 years, I finally decided on a Oneway 2436 from Canada. But that was just the beginning.
