Woodturning is the craft or art of turning articles on a lathe, usually of wood but may utilise corian, acrylic, bone, horn or imitation ivory. A lathe is a machine which spins the material at speed enabling tools to be used to shape it. The lathe may be powered by electricity, a treadle, sprung pole or bungee elastic. The finished article is usually round, but may be elliptical or off-centre (eccentric).
