Decoration produced by rotating or turning wood on a lathe and cutting it to form twisted or bulbous designs. All periods have employed turning, especially on the legs of tables. The design of the turning is often the key to the period to which the furniture belongs.
Working wood by applying cutting tools to a rotating wooden surface, resulting in rounded, often highly-sculptural members. The device which rotates the wood is called a lathe. Turning is one of the most ancient wood-working processes, dating back at least as far as the Ancient Egyptians (whose lathes were operated by a bowstring). Term also refers to the object which is created by this method.
Turning, one of the most ancient wood-working processes, is done by the application of cutting tools to the rotating surface. The device for rotating or turning the wood is called a lathe. This is the oldest idea in wood-working machinery. Egyptian lathes were operated by a bowstring; later lathes were worked by treadles. In the Middle Ages, a form of spring lathe depended on the elasticity of a wood lever alternately winding and unwinding a winch. Probably the earliest application of water power and later, stream power was to the lathe, so that in all ages turning has been convenient and direct method of treating decoratively.
