I caught this on tonight’s CBS News Webpage. Quite interesting so I thought I would share:

Wow, I have never seen shavings that big come off a lathe.
Pity there’s such a lot of waste.

Thanks for posting

Cool shade. What does he use to keep it from drying out and is heat resistant?

Wouldn’t it be less wasteful to cut out the center core first and make several shades of decreasing diameters from the same log? Save some time too. You would have to use different method to hold hollow cylinder on the lathe, but there are ways to do that.

I don’t think my 1/2 hp mini lathe could quite handle that log!

Good technique and all, but wow. What’s wrong with just wrapping veneer around into a cylinder? Just turn the lamp so the seam is facing a wall if it bothers you that much. It just seems very wasteful.
