This is the first post in a while. I milled this cedar a few weeks ago, and decided to turn a pattern on the seat. I mounted it with a 6” face plate and a bunch of stainless screws. It is natural edge and has the same design on the outside of the legs. It is 19”+ wide and that is large for Georgia. I am thinking of drilling a hole in the very center and putting a spent shell casing in it. I did use the remote kill switch so I could stay out of the line of rotation, the 4224B handled it very well. Comments are welcome.

At first when I saw those rings, I thought, hmm….. no way did he use a lathe – must have used a router on a trammel, was I ever wrong!
You have got a lot of courage to spin a chunk as heavy as that one, good job.

The cedar looks good and that made your project pop and same goes for you. Great job on the finish
