Very nice so far. Looks like you might end up with a real strong left leg using this. Hope that doesn’t make you walk in circles.
Looking forward to seeing more of this build.
Thanks for showing.

@jjw- Yeah I saw your a while ago. I like your tool rest and how it is setup….I might be copying it :)
@White- I think the design/size will fit me well. It is very light so if I need to move it I have no problems lifting it out of the way. Usually during shop time it ends up outside.

@Oldtool-I’ll have to work both legs to keep them looking even haha.

When it comes to lathe tools you have more options than you think. Take a look at what this guy uses as lathe tools.
