I love my scroll saw, but there are other tools on my wish list too. Like a lathe! Wouldn’t that be fun? It would be awesome if there was such a thing as a scroll saw/lathe combo. Nah. That’s just too good to be true. Or is it? And if we make this wonder-tool ourselves, we can save the earth too! Could it be possible? Well, Roy Underhill can make it happen in his article Lathe from a Loft (Popular Woodworking, Oct 2000 issue). The Woodworking Magazine blog has made this article available in PDF format for easy printing and reading. The article is a humourous approach to building this wonder-machine, but still includes detailed building instrucitons and photo illustrations. Even if you don’t intend to build your own scroll saw/lathe combo, check it out. Its a very entertaining read.
