Experimental Pot

After making the router jig for using on the lathe, I thought I would have a play and have started this pot. It will stand about 6" tall once upright. Made from Chestnut but will be coloured when finished

SO how are you moving the router along the lathe bed to make those horizontal grooves along the pot?
cheers

Derek,
That is certainly something different coming off a lathe.

Looks good so far.

Did you do a vid of the process?

It runs on a base as seen in this photo the position of the jig in it was just where I was setting up the centre height of the cutter

The depth of cut is controlled by the gaurd as can be seen in this photo.

I need to make a larger base board that comes out further as the back of the jig overhangs a little too much for my liking and if not careful will allow the back to tilt down if pushed into the work too much and making the cutter ride higher than needed. Once I realised this everything went OK.

And the first attempt and the faults rectified like the rings that run around the circumference needed the jig to be clamped down so it did not wonder off line. So from the first try to the one above was a learning curve even though it was a short one as I picked up on them very quick.

I really like the concept of the combination of two machines to achieve a desired outcome.
