Eccentric Spindle Woodturning With Infinite Axis Chuck

Eccentric Art

May also be viewed on YouTube and Vimeo – But best right here.

Since adapting the egg chuck into an Infinite Axis Chuck, I wanted to explore other ways that it can be used.

I used hot melt glue to fasten his piece of elm to the chuck’s tenon. Then working from the top down, I turned a series of coves and adjusted the axis a little bit with each cove. Each adjustment moved the axis between 90 and 120 degrees and increased offset from the original axis.

The finish is friction polish buffed.

This turning has no resemblance and no useful purpose. That means it must be pure art.

Good turning.

    Hi
    I enjoyed the video. I noticed you used a stool to turn your project. Being 69 I too use a stool whenever possible. I hope you are not in some way injured that the stool is necessary.
    I am going to look back and get your video on the making of the infinite axis chuck.
    Looking forward to you next session.

      No injury – just that my flat feet get very tired and sore after turning for a long time. :(
