With the wood lathe, a crude workpiece can be given the perfect rounded finish. Once you have got the hang of it, you can express yourself artistically with turning work and shape creative chair legs, bowls, buttons, rings and other workpieces. An electric wood lathe, also called a wood-turning lathe, is used for this work, and this turns the workpiece as required for working it into shape. The workpiece is clamped horizontally on the wood lathe. Turning is taken care of by a smooth-running 350 W motor, while the rest is down to the skilled craftsmanship and steady hand of the practiced DIY enthusiast.
