My First Wood Turning Commission to Reproduce an Antique Table Leg | Woodturning & Restoration

2 min read

I’ve built my wood turning skills to help restore furniture. Several years ago turned my first wood turning commission to reproduce an antique Mahogany table leg. At the time, this was a new skill for me and I’m sharing this video with some tips from the lessons I’ve learned since then.

I’m also showing an early prototype of a lathe dust collection system I’ve invented. You can learn more about it on the CleanLathe YouTube Channel
