I’ve seen that before.

My first lathe was a spring pole lathe built under a plum tree
from directions in a Roy Underhill book.

I have seen this video on a few different woodworking websites but still enjoy watching.
Just think what he could do if he was using both hands.

BJ I’ve got just about everything on Charles's list (and not that much more actually) and probably have still spent under $500. Maybe if I added it up it would be more, but if you just go as your budget allows and only buy when you see a good deal, you can get that quite reasonably.

Have your say...
