Takehito Nakajima Wood Turning Video

Takehito Nakajima is a well-respected wood turner from the west coast of Japan. His lathe is driven by belts where the direction of spin is controlled by left and right foot pedals that move the drive belt onto pulleys on the main shaft. His lathe is mounted on a table and he sits against the table with his legs below the bed to operate the pedals. Takehito forges his own tools, as do many Japanese turners. A unique aspect of Japanese wood turning is that the tool rest is not attached to the lathe but is mounted in a small stand that can positioned anywhere.
