Good one Bob!!:2tsup::2tsup::2tsup:

Always liked wooden columns myself, followed by sandstone, marble and granite. Don't go much on concrete.

Stunning job, I'll bet the shavings were flying high while that was being made.

Tea lady,
Hears some pics of two of my lathes, I have three. They aren't very god ones but I will take some tonight so that you get a better idea.
My main lathe is one of a kind manufactured for a Uni engineer project (Atkinson) its 360 over the bed and 4.5m between centres.
The second lathe was made at the BHP. I modified it to be a free end turning lathe with variable speed from 0-4500pm. Can turn 2.2Dia x unlimited.
