Every now and then I come across a picture on the internet that makes me drool—more than usual, anyway—and I wonder if the rest of you might come across a gem now and then, so I thought it might be fun to share our finds: pictures of the biggest, oldest, strangest, snazziest, most outrageous wood lathes on the web.

That, apparently, is what one does with a bowl that big.
