« Part 1: In the Beginning... Part 2 of Dave Plays with Wood Turning series Part 3: Playing with a Top »

Fooling around this evening, I cut off a length of maple that the road crew lopped off our curbside tree a few years ago and put it on my turning set up. Having recently watched a few videos on the ‘This Woodwork’ channel, nee ‘The Teen Woodworker’, I decided to try making a honey dipper. It’s still a little rough. When I showed my wife she said it was huge. Oh well. It was just an experiment anyway.

Pretty good Dave, from the drill powered lathe I presume. Nice work.

It’s the only ‘lathe’ I’ve got. I did treat myself to some cheap Chinese turning chisels though. Like I said, just playing. Jack Houweling turned a new multi-bit screwdriver handle on his, so that at least is possible.
