Woodturning 101 – Video 2 – Turn an Egg

The Egg is a simple project that most woodturners find quite challenging. Designed primarily to help students become more skilled in the proper use beveled tools like the gouge and skew, the challenge lies in making smooth, catch-free cuts while creating a properly shaped egg. Dale Nish used to say “making eggs is easy… chickens do it with their eyes closed”.

Every year aspiring woodturners attend our Woodturning 101 Workshop to learn the fundamentals that they need to be successful and have fun woodturning at home.

In our Woodturning 101 Workshop Video Series, you can see and enjoy every demonstration just as it takes place during the workshop. In all, there are 8 project demonstrations and one sharpening demo. Here on our blog, you can see them all for free.

  1. This was an excellent instructional video and I very much enjoyed watching it. I had taken one of your woodturning classes about 16 years ago. It was the best experience as far as woodturning goes.It was time well spent.

    This was very to follow and well explained just like the instruction I got at your turning class.

    Thanks for posting this video.
