If you can, find a copy of the December 2001 WOODWORKER'S JOURNAL . It contains an article on making a large (or small) dowel from a square or rectangular piece of stock. The article is on page 38 and describes the making of a Candleholder. It takes a lot more time than a lathe, but then when you don't have a lathe.... creativity is the solution. Worked for me.TerryS said:Has anyone made a router turning jig? I like to make flutes and something like that would save me a lot of time. Thanks, Terry
I must turn ostrich egg.
But that is big piece of wood and will be dangerous on lathe.
I see article in shop notes how to turn "Wood Mallet using router " this style
Here you go:Hi Dominik
Otherwise, you could build something like this, but increase the dimensions to accomodate the diameter of your egg. Sorry, I just realised that the image I wanted was on my office machine and not here, so I'll have to post it tomorrow.
