Multi-axis, or 'eccentric' wood turning is the turning of parts in two or more phases, set at different axis. The different axis can be parallel, angular, or at 90 degrees. In most cases, this will mean turning a piece of wood in a very lopsided way, with the center of gravity offset from the axis. I recommend using a robust lathe for this purpose, along with a faceplate when possible, though I have seen more extreme turnings on lighter lathes than the one I am using here.
In this project you will be making a traditional rustic Romanian-style canteen/flask/jug. This one was made at TechShop
You will need:
-A sturdy lathe with a faceplate
-A large drill bit (around 1") and a way to turn it
-A turning gouge chisel
- A straight turning chisel
-Wood finish (optional)
