« Part 2: Joinery Layout Part 3 of Treadle Lathe series Part 4: Dry fitting the first joint »

Making progress on the lathe. In the last post, I laid out the ways (the horizontal boards that the head stock, tail stock and tool rest sit on) and in this episode I cut four tenons and two housing dados! This project is definitely taking longer than expected but I’m happy with the current progress and I’m confident it will be worth the effort. Working with oak has been a learning curve in comparison to pine.

I can’t wait to be turning wood with a foot powered tool!

I’m working really hard to produce quality videos and tutorials and hope you will check it out.
