    I wouldn’t be able to work with it. I know people that do and they work it outside…

    It’s a very hard wood to work. It will dull anything it touches, tools will need constant sharpening. Pilot holes are a must. Careful of the dust as well, people can be highly allergic or can become allergic while working with it. Careful of splinters as well, they can become infected. Gluing can be an issue as well, it has to be chemically cleaned before gluing to remote the oils temporarily so it can set.

    Perhaps a little more $ to the historical society each month will help keep the lathe at the barn? Of course, that means more $ out of the club account.

    Yeah, I try never to move the blade from 90 degrees, I just keep it set to 90 and make jigs to meet whatever angle I’m looking for.
