Over this weekend I had a great opportunity to work in the wood shop with my cousin who is a Florida Fire Fighter. We got to playing around with different things on the lathe when he asked, “Do you think it would be possible to make a fire hydrant?” It never occurred to me before but after a few minutes of thought the wood shavings began flying.
The smaller one stands about 3.5” tall and I didn’t measure the taller one. The two woods are Yellow Heart and Purple Heart. Both fire hydrants were done completely on the lathe.
Overall, something a little different than the normal wood turning I’m use to creating in the shop.
