Make a ‘Desktop’ Mini Lathe With an Old Power Drill

For those of you without access to a fully-stocked workshop (myself included at the moment), we’ll take whatever we can get our hands on that is portable and is capable of scratching that wood working itch.

Self-described ‘YouTube-r, woodworker and piano technician’ Jack Houweling of Vancouver-based Jack’s Pianos has a hefty library of wood working tutorial projects ranging from the small (toy cars) to the large (workbenches).

In his latest project video, Jack gives us the rundown on how to create a project that keeps on giving using nothing but an old power drill and a hand basket worth of cheap supplies from the hardware store.

Now we finally have a use for all those foam scraps we just can’t seem to get rid of!
