Michael Alguire is a native New Mexican, born in Albuquerque. He began his wood turning hobby in 2013 making pens and small wooden ornaments. His passion has grown and his art has flourished to intricate wood turned hollow forms, including bowls, vases and abstract art pieces like basket illusions and more intricate pieces called “Wheels of Delicacy.”

Michael Alguire Shows how he produces his signature piece Wheel Of Delicacy.

In this demo I will show you the process I use to turn the form to create a wheel: from prepping the blanks, turning them and alignment for glue up.
