    Mat just started turning and love the video. Can you tell me the deminsions of your wood? Length and diameter.
    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Great video. I would love it if I could comishion you to make a mallet sush as the one in this video. My grandfather turns 86in two months and it would be a great gift for him. He is very much into wood working.
    Thanks.

    Hell Carl, I had the need for a mallet and found your video of some 8 months ago and found it very instructive, so last night I found a suitable piece of oak and turned one, similar to yours.
    Thanks for all the interesting work you publish!

    I sent you a message on your Facebook page.  God!  This is wonderful!  Be sure and let me know what the charges are ok?  How big a lathe do you work with?  Woodworking is so relaxing for me…

    I've always wanted one of those, how much would you sell one for?  Great instructional video.  It would be nice to have a lathe to turn with but unfortunately I can"t work one because I wood sculpt from an electric mobility chair not to mention not enough room.  I'm a beginner as well.  Thanks for the fine job!

    a nice-turned eucalyptus knot makes a brilliant mallet

    Most of the time, but if you want to use a polyurethane finish you can't use the wax and oil to sand with.

    I would just use a hard wood like Maple and yes you can glue up a few pieces to get your thickness.

    Bonjour, j'aime beaucoup ce que vous faîtes mais vous êtes assez "bavard" (ce n'est pas un reproche pour qui comprend votre langue mais étant français, ce n'est pas mon cas, je peux comprendre si c'est écrit mais pas si c'est parlé) et sommes-nous obligés de suivre toute la fabrication de ce maillet ordinaire jusque dans ses moindres détails? Je ne sais pas quel bois vous utilisez et je pense que si c'était un peu sous-titré (même en américain) je vous suivrai beaucoup mieux. Amitiés. Éric.

    You can use them for a lot of things around the shop. I use it with my hand chisels mostly.

    This is a Skew Chisel and you want to have the point up and the handle down. A scraper you want the handle up and cut with the burr most of the time.

    Another nice and informative video. BTW, what size roughing gouge is
    that? 1-1/2" or 2".
    Keep up the good work carl (please keep the videos coming). Soon we'll be watching you on network Tv. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm buying a lathe and have been watching a ton of video's, including yours. Around 2:48 it looks like you use a scraper with the handle "down" and the blade pointing up… I thought I'd heard somewhere that you should always have scrapers pointing down… is that true?

    I use a bowl gouge it's much safer. I use a scraper to clean up the bottoms of the boxes.

    Take care, Carl

    for making boxes, would you recommend a spindial gouge or a bowl gouge? i find the grind on the bowl gouge makes it harder to get down into the bottom

    I guess I like spindle turning more. I make a lot of boxes

    Is it difficult to work ironwood? I guess the name of the wood kind of implies that.
