And your point.....? They aren't that big, and I could make smaller ones with a smaller lathe as decorations... go troll someone else, please.'Don't know if you could buy a lathe that would handle a project like that or not. The ones I know of are large, heavy, and normally homemade (to make them affordable).
If you're on FB, Rick, his page is The Woodturners. He's out of the U.K. He has a video of him turning these. He has an industrial sized lathe, doing turning for a living.Those are actually pretty cool . I’m thinking they started with a lathe , then used a disc grinder to get those additional curves ?
Sure made a lot of chips :surprise:
As an adult, yes. My fat @$$ wouldn't be able to get down that far to sit, or raise myself to get up!! :haha: For a child, no: which the second picture shows. They would also make a nice ornament in the yard. Not sure if I'll be able to do them or get them, but I fell in love with the idea.if you want to sit on these you're going to struggle!
But the lathes from Harbor Freight would both be good for turning good mushrooms. They're fun.
You might also enjoy turning boxes and goblets etc
Have a good Birthday!
