Turning Spindles

Turning spindle turning, also known as turning between opposite poles, is a traditional woodturning technique referring to the process of turning a single piece of wood with a woodturning lathe on its center pole. When used for turning a single item, the procedure is sometimes referred to as a “one turn spindle”, but it actually involves an intricate set of rotational movements to complete the process. Many woodturners prefer this type of turn over other types.

Turning spindles are often used to turn pieces of furniture as well as tools. It is a very useful tool that can be found in many woodworking shops today. The simplest version of this tool is the lathe. This device allows the woodworker to turn a single piece of a wooden object. In most cases the item can be turned by hand, but if the lathe is not portable enough, it can be towed behind the vehicle in order to create a stable working environment.

This type of spindle requires a large space in order to perform the necessary turning. It is normally found in commercial woodturners’ workshops or on large factory machinery.
