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.

Looks like you have some experience with turning LARGE pieces of wood. LOL I’m sure your being smart! The project works! Definite eye catcher!
