I'm very excited as this weekend I am going on a course to build and learn to use a pole lathe, which I will bring back to the woods for you all to try! It can make round objects out of wood, so we can make stool legs, rattles, handles etc and it is great for children to use a simple machine.
Courtesy of www.woodlandskillscentre.co.uk in Wales I shall be writing an article on how to make a pole lathe with photos for Living Woods magazine! Watch out for the article!
