This was a pretty good weekend for me. I went to Woodcraft and bought my very first lathe. It is a Jet Mini lathe with variable speed control, and cost less than $300 because of a sale going on. I’m going to start turning pens, maybe some small bowls, pepper mills, bottle stoppers, etc. As I finish a project I’ll post a bunch of pictures on this site.
I haven’t had a chance to put it together yet because the inlaws were in town, but perhaps tomorrow evening. I’ll put up some pictures of the lathe when I get a chance.
