Lathes allow you to take any shape in wood, metal, or plastic, and turn it into a cylindrically symmetric object. Wood lathes are great for furniture making, and metal lathes are used all the time in machining. Check out these cool lathe projects that either show you what you can make with a lathe, or teach you how to build your own!
