A wooden lathe , is a machine that spins a piece of wood at a high (or low ,depending on what you are carving) velocity. It consists a motor, tool rest, and pieces of metal to hold the wood in place. The pieces of metal used to lock the wood into place vary, depending on how it needs to be held.
It can be used to smooth and shape wood. In addition to wood lathes, lathes are also available for working with metal and glass. Each of these lathes are commonly used by crafters and do-it-yourselfers in order to customize and complete projects.

In order to use a wood lathe, the crafter must insert a piece of wood into a special holder called a center. This center holds the wood in place so it can be shaped using the wood lathe with a variety of handheld blades. Some wood lathes, however, are capable of holding the blade in place, so the user does not have to hold the blade. The center spins the wood rapidly as the crafter applies the blade to the surface of the wood piece.
A wood lathe can be fitted with a variety of different blades. These blades can be of different widths, angles, and shapes. The type of blade used with the wood lathe determines the way it will cut the wood. Some blades are wide with sharper angles and intended to cut large portions of wood away from the piece. Other blades are sharper or pointier, allowing detailing to be completed with the help of the wood lathe.
