    One of the reasons turning has become such a popular hobby, is the speed with which you can turn out a quality project. Of course, the fact that you can outfit yourself with a mini lathe and some basic turning tools for only a few hundred dollars also helps. In short, basic turning doesn't require a warehouse full of tools or years-and-years of practice.
