Today on the treadle lathe turned wood.
Two mushrooms from maple, and some boat parts turned from Ash.
Meanwhile, a cabinet leg turned in dry red oak. Dimensions, 2.5 inch x 7inch, running time 15min.
The treadle lathe works great, almost as fast as a motorized lathe.
Thanks to the heavy-duty drive wheel there is plenty power to the main axis.
Most of the turning as done with a flat chisel and a spindle gouge.
Within a few days followed a video that I’ll post here.
