This is a simple router lathe i build to ake the round columns for my wifes garden arbour.
It is a box frame with flange bearings on each end and end caps screwed to the ends of the post blanks
a carrige bolt thru the endcaps and nuts hold it in place .
The one end can be moved to allow the post to be installed and removed( see pic 6 )
I start routing along the post to dress down the high corners and the hav someone turn the post by the hand crank and slowly route the post to size using the turret on the router as a gauge and when done routing i sand the post while rotating with a random orbit sander
