    While it's possible to turn a bowl with just a faceplate on your lathe and maybe a shop-made jam chuck, it's a lot easier if you equip your lathe with a four-jaw chuck. As the name suggests, this type of chuck has four jaws, and these jaws can be adjusted in and out to hold a workpiece, either by contracting around a turned tenon or expanding into a recess you turn in the workpiece. Most chucks also include a large screw insert for mounting blanks for shaping and turning the tenon or recess. Four-jaw chucks are an investment, so you want to choose wisely. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind when deciding on the best chuck for you.

    Whether you call it a miter saw, cutoff saw or chop saw, this type of machine is built to cut wood to finished length, an operation that involves cutting across the grain. So you know you'll want a crosscut blade, whose high tooth count and knife-like alternating-top-bevel tooth shape can yield an almost polished-looking surface. You'll also probably want a thin-kerf blade to reduce the burden on the saw's motor and to get the greatest possible yield from your stock.
