The Cylinder Mill is a new contraption that allows you shape and cut cylindrical shapes with your table saw. To use the Cylinder Mill, you set a piece of lumber between its two centers, and then rotate the lumber via crank handle as you push the contraption over your table saw’s spinning blade.
Tapers, tenons, cylinders, oh my.
It’s really something you have to watch in action to better understand:
There are two versions available – with tracks ($160), and without tracks ($139).

While more of a specialty tool, the Cylinder Mill is much more affordable than the size of lathe that would be needed to work on larger logs and workpieces. For that matter, it is also priced lower than larger-sized tenon cutters as well.
