Turning Spindle Turning, also known as turning around centers, is basically a wooden turning technique that refers to the process of turning a piece of wooden material on the wood lathe with its turning end being pointed inwards. When a lathe is used, it consists of a large flat bed with a platform at the bottom. The wood which is turning must be placed on a bed which lies between the two platforms. This is done in such a way that all the work can be viewed from the sides. When the work is complete, the top part of the platform can be removed and the bed is cleaned by sweeping it with a brush.
