Re: Ingenious foot-powered lathe

the only problem is, without the metal parts from the old lathe and the bearings, tool post steel, welding, metal turnings etc, its just basic carpentry, how about a video on building the nuts and bolts of the project, it seems to me that those are the important parts

Re: Flatten Wide Boards without a Big Jointer

Re: Dovetails with a Reciprocating saw?

I use a drill bit,but drill down from the top,that is into the end grain that leaves only the sides to take out with a saw/chisel blade(also can use a plunge router). also i have found the underhill(traditional) method of a cranked blade that is with a 90 degree twist in the middle very handy
