Woodworker and YouTube star Frank Howarth takes us on a comprehensive tour of his woodshop. Howarth is the creator of the bamboo Death Star and turner of the wooden eyeball.
In honor of Star Wars Day (“May the Fourth be with you”), Howarth constructed a wooden Death Star – and filmed the process in timelapse.
Howarth built the bamboo death star using a CNC, a lathe, and conventional equipment - filming the entire process in timelapse. He also turned a wooden eyeball from maple, cherry, birch, walnut, and ebony.
Howarth's shop features a Porter Heavy Pattern Jointer, a J. A. Fay & Egan Co. 950 Lightning Bandsaw, and more. A full list can be accessed here.
