It seems like, there is a new lathe on the market every time you pick up a new issue of a woodturning magazine. Most of them are of little or no interest to me. However, recently two new lathes have come out that really get my attention. I think they are going to become very popular. I think the new Powermatic 2014 is really going to revolutionize the under $2000 market.
Meta Description: How Carl added a Bottom Shelf to his new Powermatic 3520C lathe with roughly 240 lbs of stone ballast. It is really a two level shelf. With stone on the bottom and a storage shelf above.
The first thing I turned on my new Powermatic 3520C Lathe is what I call a
plate bowl. A plate with a little bowl in the center. I like to turn this
shape and then use it as a canvas that I can decorate.
10" diameter. 1-1/2" tall. Maple wood. Lathe and hand
carved rings and grooves. Red stain. Gold acrylic paint. Acrylic lacquer finish.
