This week I received a very large delivery to my humble shop. My wonderful wife allowed me to get a new lathe so that I would have more flexibility in the size and scale of the projects that I can make. From the moment I made my first bowl I realized that this is a hobby that I would like to continue doing for a very long time.
After looking at all of the different models of lathes that were available, the best bang for the buck award went to Laguna with their Revo 18|36 lathe. This lathe can turn items up to 18″ wide. That allows me to make a MASSIVE salad bowl! With one add-on item, I could increase the maximum size to a MONSTROUS 32″ capacity. This lathe is much more suited to the task of making bowls and I look forward to spending a lot of time making projects with this!
