Woodturning is a process used to create wooden objects on a lathe. It differs from most other forms of woodworking in that the wood is moving while a relatively stationary tool is used to cut and shape. Many intricate shapes and designs can be made. There are two distinct methods of turning wood: spindle turning and faceplate turning. In spindle turning, the grain of the wood runs lengthwise, parallel to the bed of the lathe. In face plate turning, the grain of the wood runs perpendicular to the axis of rotation. Most bowls, platters and many vessels are face plate turned. Pens, furniture legs, spindles, and some vessels are spindle turned.
