But realize that wood lathe is generally need for duty and the lathe can be another expensive tool to carry to the workshop is only for bowls or dishes. The question then arises not only what you can make with a lathe but also what else can you make with a wood lathe? The answers are many but easy to find.
If you see a wood lathe as a particular craft tool, a simple display around the store and home provides many solutions. Many pots and pans are currently lines with Teflon. Or some other non-stick surface which prohibits the use of metal tools. Wood turns can make spatulas, potato slices and other kitchen utensils suitable for use with modern materials.
For those who like to buy items such as pickles, olives or the like in large jars, the jars look useful but not beautiful. A few minutes in the wood lathe produces a fitting that the jar lid will glue to and now the tube becomes a tube with a decorative lid. Simple but elegant, this, of course, prevents clear items in the kitchen which are the mainstay of reversing wood in European and Eastern pre-industrial villages and cities. Salt and pepper, pepper mills, bowls, boxes, candlesticks and so on. Every village has turns and not just for dishes.
