Easy to make on your wood lathe, Metal Spinning Workshop brings this art form to the woodturner to expand their craft. This fun and age-old art form is now available to the woodturner with a wood lathe of any size.

Metal spinning is the process of spinning a metal disc around a formed wood mandrel to produce a finished product that matches the shape of the wood mandrel. Similar to a potter forming clay on a wheel, the spinner rotates a metal disc on a lathe and, applying pressure, shapes it to a new form. The result can be used in an infinite number of products from aerospace parts to beautiful works of art. Since the creation of mass produced products, metal spinning has become a vanishing craft.
