Big Bowl, Small Lathe

I sawed a green Walnut log in half on my bandsaw, cut it to a circle, and my little lathe was too small to turn it with the tool rest on.

Now, when it comes to woodturning, I’m a newbie.  However, I watched 3 Tim Yoder woodturning videos that week and was feeling invincible!

So, I mounted the lathe to my work bench and set up my own tool rest using hard maple and bar clamps.  It worked!  (note:  I do not officially recommend doing this)
