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.
