The tenon removal technique and the variable speed control was what I liked.  Smiley Not sure if that was a Thompson or a D-Way scraper.

Kind of make me wonder why I "needed" my multi thousand $ set up I have out in the garage shop.

That's kinda the point.

Having all kinds of fancy tools is one thing but the end product speaks for itself.
That piece will probably used for a generation or two.

I see my problem!!

I never thought to use a machete to finish off the bottom.

I also don't have a kid to sand it while I'm still turning.

I did like the way he basically just implied, "here, finish this off, I have to make the pestle"

In the 60s my uncle's woodshop was an uninsulated former chicken coop. He loved to refurbish found rockers and stools, etc. His lathe was two brackets nailed to wall studs. One held a motor with a hand filed drive ctr mounted on the shaft and the other held a bolt filed to a point and adjusted with lock nuts. Toolrest? Board screwed across the front. The whole bldg rumbled and rattled when he plugged it in. He repaired a lot of stuff using that setup.

Yes, we may complain about our current (or former) lathe, but we really need to count our blessings. Smiley

There is a book about workbenches, that the author went traveling to see who used what. He went to many of the "modern masters", for lack of a better term and was amazed that some of them had benches that were no more than a door laying on two saw horses.

It's not what you have that counts,
It's what you do with what you have that matters.

IMO too many people get too caught up in the tools they have and not what they can do with them

That's what my ex girlfriend said to me just before she asked for my brothers phone number. Shocked



But, seriously folk's...

My workbench is made from an old  single size, pedestal bed. It has drawers on both sides and I added 4x4 legs  and castors and with some internal ribs, I added a 1" thick piece of MDF for the top.


BIG fan of repurposing stuff!! Smiley Smiley

In another thread I posted a photo of my newly built drill press table, here is what the old one looked like.
This is nothing more than a couple pieces of plywood sandwiched over a few boards. It was originally made for a small bench top DP, designed to slide over the metal table. Then I needed it for a more important job and stole it to put on my larger drill press. I centered it on the table and ran two screws up into it from beneath. It remained that way for 10+ years.
