Wood lathe turning
Wood lathe turning:
A wood lathe is a machine tool which spins a block of wood in order to cut it, remove material from it or shape it to create an object which has a symmetry about an axis of rotation.
A woodlathe has an adjustable horizontal metal rail called a tool rest which is located between the material and the operator and accomodates the positioning of hand held shaping tools.
Sand paper can be pressed against the still spinning object after shaping to smooth the surface of the object.
