This Little Piggy Went to the Bank

Carl Jacobson is a woodturning virtuoso.  Even if woodturning is not your thing, you will probably enjoy his videos.  Carl has a very relaxed manor and there’s just something about watching a true authority at work.

The walnut and maple piggy bank that Carl came up with after being challenged by a viewer turned out great.  And it’s not a particularly complicated project that you could make your own version of.  Carl gives a great sanding tip near the middle of the video, so be on the lookout for that.

I have only recently gotten a lathe and it doesn’t take long to realize why woodturning is so addictive.  There’s something magical about the process of turning square wood into round wood.  I also find it very relaxing.

After you watch the piggy bank appear, you can also check out the Piggy Bank Follow-up that he did.  Either way, be sure to subscribe to Carl’s YouTube channel to keep up with his latest videos.  You can also follow him on Twitter or Facebook.
