Main Body of Lathe

This is a wood lathe many years in the making. The Carlyle Lynch original was featured in Fine Woodworking, March/April 1986. This lathe is solid pecan that I sawed and stacked for 15 years. I built this lathe partly as a tribute to my Father,(Journeyman Cabinetmaker and Draftsman), and also to those that said it was a waste of time and it will never make it out of my basement. Here's to you Dad. Hope you all enjoy as well.

Design or Plan used: Carlyle Lynch

The angel of your dad over your shoulder will always be present as you produce more tributes in the form of lathe objects. You have work to do! Keep charging!
