Pole Lathe bowl Turning thread anyone??

Recommended Posts

Do you use the same tools as turning with a powered lathe or is it a completely different tool kit as well as skill set?
 

Ive tried turning on a powered lathe but only managed a few funky shaped bits of firewood 😂

Different tools. Long steel rods with a razor sharp hook on the end with long wooden handles for leverage. Tools are called “bowl turning hooks” as they’re designed specifically for turning bowls. I’ll post some pictures at some point.
