Not just for metal.

I’ve been gluing up some oak 4 x 4’s and since I can’t turn them in my wood lathe I thought the metal lathe will work fine. Not exactly precision machining but hey, a fellow needs to have some variety.

Need to be a little creative with the tool post….







A few updates:  After gluing up the head and foot boards I steam bent a top trim board (see the post here)Steam Bending,  glued and clamped the assembly,  and got started finishing.










And here we are, ready to go.
