Wooden Pendant Light | Woodturning | Modern Builds




Today on Modern Builds, I’m making my first project on the lathe: a hanging, wooden pendant light. I’m a complete novice woodturner and learning as I go, so don’t try and learn from me on this video. Overall, I was really impressed with the lathe and carbide tools. Not having to worry about maintaining chisel edges is great, it allowed me to focus on my work and learning proper technique. I’ll have some links below to videos I found helpful getting comfortable with the lathe.

Huge thanks to Rockler for sponsoring this video:

and Thanks to JET for providing the lathe! (1440VS)

    Just curious… Who is your local supplier? I'm in Tulsa, and I am having trouble sourcing lumber (outside of WoodCraft).

    Nice project Mike! Happy to see you wear eye protection, hearing protection and a dust mask when working the electronics at 6:57! XD Everything to shut up the safety nerds right? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Are the locking arms on the jet lathe metal or plastic?

    For future reference, if you need to hollow out something like that, start with the forcener bit.

    Cant you just hold the paper and let the wood turn without attaching it to wood?

    It helps to save time and your blade if you cut your square into a hexagon before using the lathe! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think you need to take some time and go to stodoys website to learn how to make it.
