Very nice. Can’t wait for the finish.

I can also see a big advantage to haveing a “free standing” lathe. Mine is on a bench against the wall. Turning the inside of bowls I have to reach around the back side to get the tool at the correct angle.

Thanks for posting.

Keep it up.

Looks like a real nice “extra long gouge” ..and you sure are hogging out some nice curly’s. Will be glad to see the finished project. Olive wood is something I never get to play with, looks like a nice wood.

I also noticed your ability to stand on the “other side” of the lathe. That does make things a bit easier. I have the ability to reverse, but then I always worry about the chuck coming loose…........ Food for thought for sure.

Hello Toyguy me too but Im a leftie,only reverse the lathe for sanding,once I tried turning clockwise and no problem chuck comming loose unless you get a nasty cach it ussually do not unscrew,also I do something considered a no no,srew the chuck a few treads and then start the lathe full speed,it does get very tigth,I take it out with wrench and a bar,I have been doing this for many years and no problems ,the wrench does no go in the chuck but in a spacer I have in between the spindle and the chuck
