The traditional woodturning consists in giving cylindrical shape to any piece of wood using wood lathe, entirely hand actuated (and foot!). The result is stunning: because the processing occurs in a few seconds, and because the quality is impeccable.

Throughout your workshop 4 hour you will discover in particular the various used wooden substance and the mechanism of traditional wood lathe.
