I needed a lathe to help me with other projects i want to do, so i set out to find a design that would suit my needs. After watching some youtube videos i started to work on my own design.
First i made all cuts on a bandsaw to try the design. Surprised by what i feel was a successful first attempt, i started drawing the parts on Sketchup to then mill on my CNC router.
Feel free to suggest, help and criticize as much as you can, im sure the more people involved the better the outcome.
In the file section you'll find the current design
Here is a link to the video of that first attempt
