Finished off the formers for the leather drinking vessels at the weekend.
|L-R Jack, 2 pint Bombard, 4 pint Bombard|
That was hard on the legs and as I was only getting one and a half revolutions each stroke I started to think about making a Lamhog.
This one is in Willow from Ireland, possibly late 18th early 19th century and recently sold at Christies for £2400.
You have to rig the lathe so that it only makes one revolution when you turn the handle area or you’ll snap it off.
