How to get started in wood turning and few other questions
Hello yall, Im trying to get into wood turning and have a few questions but before i do that let me introduce myself since im new here. Im a 17 year woodworker whos been doing this for 8 or 9 years ( Parents trusted me with tools a little to much). I work out of a garage and make things like rustic furniture and chest or planter boxes and cutting boards. I try to sell these things to make money. Im trying to make some actual money from this so i thought about turning. That opens doors previously closed due to lack of having the right tool.
Now, I cant afford a real nice lathe ( im saving up for a tablesaw ) but im a pretty good builder and thought about building one. I want to be able to turn bowls and make things like table legs. what do yall recommend? I wanna try to make some more things to sell.
Also, what are some good things to build to make money. What do yall make? Since im young, i cant open a store or anything so i dont have a good selling platform.
Thanks for the help!
