Making Realistic Flowers on a Lathe

09-14-2008 04:52 PM by Sir_Robert | 6 comments »

Jocks, Check out this demo on youtube: The fellow has an old treddle lathe that spins about 200 rpm. He creates these spectacular wooden flowers out of 1/2-inch diameter hazelnut sun shoots. Unfortunately in my neck of the woods (southeastern Michigan) hazelnuts are not common, so I’m in the process of drying out some lilac shoots instead. I’ll report on success or lack thereof in a few months. If you are in a region that has hazelnut trees, maybe we can work out a deal for you to send me some branches. Regards,Sir Robert
