DOI Info:


This work is aimed at producing a functional portable wood lathe machine. This type of lathe is capable of creating different wood designs using the cheapest available materials and easy technology. Analysis of different component parts of the machine were carried out to determine their strength, stress, dimensions and suitable materials. The design of portable mini wood machine was done with Auto desk inventor. Selection of standard parts were made before manufacturing and assembly of component parts. The mini wood lathe is a portable machine of dimension 1150 mm × 300 mm × 40 mm. Available local materials utilized. The machine was fabricated to hold the work piece and move the tool in sliding mechanism. The parts were assembled and the machine performance was evaluated.
