Yeah, they’re bracelets. Using wood from my apple tree again. But more importantly, what do you wish you were?

...not a catfish, but that’s some pretty nice bracelet work! Who’s the model, your daughter? No matter, I saw some bracelets made by someone else on here and am going to make some for my wife. Drilling them on the drill press after turning isn’t something I’d thought of. I’d planned on running the woodworm screw into the end of the blank, and drilling in before parting off. Hmm different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Way to go Steve! Nice bracelets and lathe work! Some times the best little things can be turned out of old firewood log!

Steve, I don’t post very often at all here, but I must say, that was a very entertaining video. Well done!

Thank you for sharing the video. I have enjoyed watching all of your videos, both for the information and surprisingly the videography as well ;) I do pick up on something new from all that you post, ok I think there was the one on wood magazine which I don’t know what I got out of it, but I’ll let that one slide.

I look forward to seeing more.

This was a really fun and informative video! I have no experience with lathe work and I find it fascinating to watch. Thanks!

A great video Steve! Your new producer is doing a great job for you, you might need to increase his allowance.
