THAT IS CLEVER! To be remembered. From now, who needs a lathe for turning columns? Thanks for sharing.
As a guard, how about gluing/screwing a chunk of wood where the blade exits the sled so it won’t get through?

Ingenious! Necessity may be the mother of invention, but you can rightfully claim to be one of the fathers. Thanks for sharing.

Very well done. I don’t think I will build a copy though, I think the lathe would still beat it out for ease of finishing.If I didn’t have a lathe, that would certainly do the trick.

Brilliant idea. If I didn’t have a lathe I’d build one

If it where me, I’d use a cordless drill in lieu of the hand crank.

Nice, but wouldn’t it be easier (and safer) to use it on the router table with a large flat bottom bit?

Ingenious! And the columns must be completely true, of constant diameter
Which prompts the thought that tapered columns could be made by offsetting the front support ?
(You might need self-aligning bearings – if they are not already being used)

Very creative! Shifting the bearings side to side (opposite directions) would yield a range of shapes where the center of the column is narrower than the ends – if one ever needed that… Thanks for sharing.
