Scrap wood for turning - 9 replies

I recently purchased a new lathe. My question is, I have all sorts of scrap wood lying around. If I were to stack glue these pieces together to say 8” high by 6”x6” square, is it possible to turn these new blocks into something? Or am I wasting my time for a possible accident?

My dilemma is, should I lay it with a rag, a brush, a sprayer or what. My deck is is 8’x18’. All pressure treated lumber was used. An...

Double Box like Table - 5 replies

Is it possible to build a table 5’x2’ (the top will be like a box and the bottom will be like a box) example 5’x2’x4”, separated with four 32”x5” rounded legs? My plans were to use 3/4” birch for the boxed top, bottom, sides and ends. The entire carcass of each box would be the 3/4” birch, is this possible to attach this thick of wood to o...
