Episode 1 Short Interview Series - Kolby Peterson


Listener Question

Hi Guys:

I love the  show. I have a ton of questions but I will try to keep it to a minimum today.

I bought a mini lathe to make a pen for Christmas. My son is ten and we made a pen for his mom for a Christmas gift and we made a couple of pencils for his teachers and about ten key chains for his teachers.

The lathe I bought was a kit from pennstate. It came with some crappy turning tools the pen mandrel and five pen kits and five pencil kits.

The lathe has a ten inch capacity.

I want to get into hollow forms. What do I need to get started and how do I physically turn the hollow forms?  

I was looking  at the tools on Highland Woodworking. I am leaning away from  the carbide tools. I feel like I want to learn the traditional tools.

Can you comment on the Hyland  Bodger line of tools. They seem inexpensive but I don’t want to buy something that I regret.

2 Thoughts to “Episode 1 Short Interview Series – Kolby Peterson”

  1. Great little episode! I enjoyed it and having snippets with guests is a great idea.

  2. Hi there Braxton!

    I just did my “binge listening” of the remaining few WTA podcasts that I had to catch up with.

    I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the comments and humor of you, Jason and Carl. I especially enjoyed the short interview episode with Kolby Peterson. It was good to hear his feedback of the classes he took with Kirk Deheer at Craft Supplies. Hopefully, when I manage to get parole from my caretaking responsibilities, I look forward to taking a few classes in Utah.

    I am looking forward to your report on the basket illusion class you will be taking soon.

    Take care and be well.

    Warm regards,

    Lupe Nielsen
