    Tom it’s a Bowllater ๐Ÿ™‚ the wood is quite stunning.

    Luke it’s not that hard to turn out board on on a lathe I do it quite a few very large pieces and natural stuff, it’s what I like to do. I have a free standing Jet tool rest which helps, but I want a VB36 then you will see extra large ๐Ÿ™‚

    The vb36 would be a great addition to anyone’s shop as it can still do spindle work so you can use it as the master bowl turner or a normal lathe.

    but then one I like as well is the onewayย  2436 as it still has the bed so I can do vases and that on it but also be able to do 24″ bowl or platterย  over the bed.
