More Rotary Tests

Postby Rcnewcomb » Mon Apr 22, 2019 1:12 am

Each one cuts in under 20 minutes. The natural wood one (poplar) cut in 5 minutes.

The finish on the white columns is Rustoleum Multi-color texture (rattle can). The wood underneath is redwood.

Today I was using 16" long 2x2 redwood pieces. I can now go from a square blank to a finished item in under 8 minutes.
