Hi there, i have both metal and wood lathes. I have used the Metal Lathe on wood and it works very well. I the drawings to make a tool rest for a metal lathe which would make turning on the metal lathe much easier. I also use my milling machine alot on wooden projects. I’d get both if you can. if not I’d consider the metal lathe you can at least work wood with it but it is hard to work metal with a wood lathe. Just my 2 cents.
