This is the BIG stuff that I'm working on to FINALLY get my workshop organised. I've been walking round the lathe packing crate for around two years and sold my previous lathe 18 months ago in readiness for setting up the Record. Some things take time......

I looked around at plenty of bench plans and settled on this design from Keith Rowley's "Woodturning - A Foundation Course". Just heading out to the shed now to measure up for new mounting bolts and maybe by tomorrow avo I'll be turning! I'll fit doors later....Hopefully not 2 years later!

Any other women woodies close to Tweed Heads?

Great looking lathe bench, just love the way all those bolt holes are so symetrical!
Catch up soon
