Essential Woodturning Equipment for Beginners

Welcome to the first episode of my new woodturning for beginners series.

Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be looking at projects particularly suitable for beginners and those who want to practice!

In this episode, I show you around my workshop and go through items of my kit and equipment that I feel are essential, but also some ‘nice to have’ items too.

At all times, you are responsible for your own safety, that of your workshop and other people in it. Ensure you wear suitable personal safety equipment at all times.

This is my way of turning this project – Other turners may turn it differently and you may find your own way of reaching the same result.
