My first attempt on a video, il try some more later.

My father have been woodturning since he had to stand on a Box to reatch up to the lathe, vile his Brothers pedaled it. Just wanted to show him turning one of these pillars, you realy need to know what Your doing when turning something of this size and weight. the sides of the pillar will be carved, and the senter round part will be carved in a spiral shape. This lathe can take lengths up to 3 meters, we have a bigger one thats used on rare occasions. Hope you enjoy, pretty cool lathe :)

I know what you mean about all that weight spinning around. Your dad does have a wonderful brute of a lathe though, so it looks relatively safe to me and it’s obvious that he knows what he is doing.

Wow! That’s what you call a big turning. Your father sure does know what he’s doing and I’ll bet that you learned quite a lot from him.

Now that is some Way heavy duty turning!!!
Thanks for showing us your dads work.
You could tell someone about it but till they see it done there’s no way to understand.
I have made many table legs and such but the idea of turning such large work is mind blowing.
