Ready to try my hand at bowls....
I have the new Delta 46-460 V/S lathe and ready to try bowls but I don't know exactly what else I need.I have been watching alot of you-tube lately and it's got me wound up.My current full time job gives me the advantage on finding wood.We throw away 5-7 dump truck loads on a daily basis of all kinds of wood.Usually anything from Walnut,Maple,Cherry,Pine,Oak.Right now it is ground up into mulch.So, it's time to learn to turn.I know I will probally need a chuck of some sort,and some more turning tools.Right now I only have a 3/8's Robert Sorby turning gouge.I am looking into a RS 1/2" oval schew.What else would I need?Any suggestions on a chuck? Nova maybe?
