Turning cedar plugs with Vega duplicator

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

I am new to this forum and seeking information on how to turn cedar plugs. Long story short, the plugs I used for many years are no longer manufactured. I bought a Comet II MIDI lathe and a Vega 8562 duplicator with the idea on making them myself. The design is easy I have a number of examples. They were originally made from Western red Cedar. Any tips on working with this wood?

I have never turned Western, but I will say this, be very careful Winch says to make sure to use a respirator plus some kind of protective clothing and make sure to wash right after handling. Meaning cutting sanding ect.
