Ron, If you don’t mind me asking what lathe do you have? Loved both of the videos, very interesting.

Nice job on the plates. Could you tell what tool you are using and show how you are holding them for us wannabes ? :-)) At one point you had a big flat tool that looked like you were scraping the inside of the plate. Was that home made?

Ron, this is another nice video. It looks like you are having fun and enjoying yourself. Nice job on re-purposing the barn wood as well.

Thank you for a very informative video! I think you should get a commission on every lathe that gets bought because of the interest you generated here LOL! Great pace, interesting content and Like TopamaxSurvivor I have questions about how you did what you did. I know nothing about lathe work except what I’ve been able to glean from LJs here so no on hands experience (yet).
