This idea is not new at all, many people made their own homemade lathes and I've borrowed ideas and inspiration from many of them. This is my version of a DIY lathe. I used a broken drill press stand I had laying around.

Tools and materials:
Drill press stand: https://amzn.to/2Nv43RQ
Drill: https://amzn.to/2ykETQd
Miter box: https://amzn.to/2pIkscc
hacksaw: https://amzn.to/2ywuMYP
T-nuts: https://amzn.to/2ym6ujX
6mm threaded rod: https://amzn.to/2pEiXvw

Caution: Making and using your own power tools is a bit dangerous, so if you want to make something like that yourself, do it at your own risk.
