Watching a woodworker turn a nice newel or chair leg on a lathe is fascinating. You’d like to try that yourself, wouldn’t you? But a lathe is a serious investment in money, time, space, and material. That’s why we have WebGL Lathe Workshop, where you can try it out online, free! Select your material, spin the lathe with the space bar, and carve with your cursor. Then watch the wood chips fly! I have no idea what I was trying to create when this screenshot was taken, but it was fun to try. -via Kottke
