Treadle Lathe Wood Turning at Colonial Williamsburg Hay Cabinet Shop

Home/Posts/Treadle Lathe Wood Turning at Colonial Williamsburg Hay Cabinet Shop

In the above video you’ll see a fantastic tutorial by Colonial Williamsburg craftsman Brian Weldy. He was kind enough to share a tutorial on how to turn a spindle using a historic foot-powered treadle lathe. Wood turning requires great skill, and Brian exhibits it in this video.

I filmed this skill tutorial (and several other skill tutorials) inside the 18th Century Anthony Hay Cabinet Shop at Colonial Williamsburg.
