I am guessing a treadle lathe could do it, but a great wheel lathe would be a
better choice. Lacking those I would try a trammel. A piece of saw blade with a
few teeth at the end of the trammel would get you, eventually, a cut. Extend a
bit and repeat. After that, careful chisel work.  Wonder how a router at the end
of a trammel would/could work?

Bill, speculating like crazy this afternoon.
