Wood Lathes

Lumberjack Wood lathes

Wood lathes are used to process wood through a circular motion. On the lathe you attach the piece of wood that you want to shape and the wood lathe lets the piece of wood turn.

Because you place a chisel against the rotating wood, a shape is cut or scraped from the wood. The chisel is attached to a so-called leaning trowel. A trowel is attached to the base that can be moved vertically and horizontally. This way you can adjust the lean to the correct height and distance.
