Today I am going to show you how to make professional juggling torches. This is also my entry for the woodworking contest. My idea for this started sometime ago. I have always been amazed about juggling fire and knifes. So like everyone else who wants to learn how to juggle I first learned how to juggle juggling balls. After I learned those I built my own clubs and learned those. Finally I was ready to try and learn how to juggle fire. But every were I checked online I found out that each torch costs around 50-75 dollars a piece! That is when I decided to make my own.
Step 1: Gathering the Materials
Kevlar wicks or Kevlar gloves
paint (I recommend spray paint)
Step 2: Turning the rectangle into a Circle
Probably the most time consuming part of this project. The idea of this is to take the piece of wood and keep chiseling the wood away until it's round. To do this first you need to put your wood in your lathe and start it up, remembering to start off at a slow speed and constantly turning the wheel to hold the wood better so you wont chip the wood. Now using your gouge slowly move up and down the lathe until it is almost perfectly round. don't forget to constantly check the check the diameter of the wood using your Caliper. Your goal diameter is about 2in so you have a lot of extra wood to work with. like I said this is probably the most time consuming part and the most boring but stick with it.
