Making a play table for my daughter and my wife recently ‘took up’ the lathe. She turned these mighty fine legs (but terrible picture, sorry). She got them all nearly identical on the first try!
It’s going to be a super cheap play table out of pine that rests over her open top toy box and has a back ‘lip’ to prevent her figurines from falling off.
Also, she needed a good place to put her lathe tools while working, so I roughed up a little side rest out of some scrap plywood. It will rest in the lathe channel on the extension piece by the head. Finished pics tomorrow.
