I actually had a lathe, but very rarely used it. I've never really done much lathe work, so I never got good at it. It was taking up so much space that I sold it.
If I ever have the need for turned pieces, like legs to a chair or table, they can be ordered out of wood working catalogs or purchased at specialty stores like Rocker in Costa Mesa, CA.
They have a website, too.
