Just heard about wood turning
Ok so like my title suggests, I basically just heard about wood turning maybe 5 minutes ago when I found this part of the forum. I'm a finisher and have been looking for something that I can make to finish, but not having the room to build furniture I've kind of been stuck.
I'm wondering, is wood turning something you can do in a relatively small space? What exactly do I need to get started? From what I read I need a lathe.. not exactly sure what that is yet.. Is wood turning something I can teach myself by reading and following tutorials or is it a bit more involved then that.
Don't expect to be the best, just want to learn to make a simple round(ish) bowl.
oh yea I'm heading off to google to find out what I can about it.
