Woodturning | Turning A Bowling Pin Into A Mallet | Carl Jacobson


I had so much fun with the bowling balls, thought I’d make something with a bowling pin. I’ve turned quite a few pin years ago, but they had Maple centers. The new pins are synthetic easy to turn, but not a lot of thing you can do with them.


I put together a list of some of the tools I use in my shop

Hi my name is Carl Jacobson,
I started woodworking with my grandfather as a young boy. I continued woodworking through high school, and started woodturning after seeing a turned project in a friends shop. Shortly after YouTube started, I was looking for a howto video for duck calls, with no results I decided to make my own video. Some of my fondest memories are working with my grandfather in his wood shop. Being able to share our passion for woodworking, ties it all together.

  1. You've started something Carl. Turning my first bowling ball bowl. Got another in reserve. Thanks for the inspiration and I have credited you in my FB posts. Cheers, Noel

  2. All of you complaining about Twister pins, do you realize that both AMF and Brunswick pins are made in the same factory and the quality of those pins are absolutely terrible and break in less then a year and I've seen them break in as quick as 2 months. Twisters slide more, react more, and ultimately will help the bowler score higher and will last for the bowling center way longer, allowing the centers to spend more money on the center itself for the "great…. bowlers" ha.

  3. Besides EWT, any other starter carbide sets you'd recommend ? Lot of negative feedback about the short handles of the EWT starter set. Finally got my first lathe and would like to get a decent but reasonable set of carbide chisels to get me started. A set that I can turn some pens, some candle holders, some small bowls etc. Appreciate any insight !

  4. Twister is the only company making synthetic pins. Brunswick & AMF Quebec still makes theirs using maple. That said, great video, thanks

  5. Not all Hammer balls have the small core. If you get one, take it to a pro shop, or call a pro shop. They can tell you what weight block is in it. Or, you can google some of the newer balls, they get thrown out a lot too. The newer cover stocks don't last a long time, before they become inefficient on the lanes.

  6. If you've any other ideas for pins, I've two I can give you. My only request is whatever you make, I've a friend that's really into bowling. So get you a video and a extra pin to make something cool for a church friend.

  7. I've never heard of that multicolored plastic you said you make keychains out of, but if you can only make smaller things, it seems like it'd make a cool chess set.
