I turned a ring from a box of colored pencils. 12 pencils glued into a blank an then turned on the lathe.

I like that a lot! Yet another thing to make me wish I had a lathe.

drmfreek_ Thanks. You could adapt this pretty easily to a drill press or even hand drill project. Just with a slightly larger dowel and some rasps….

But don’t let that stop you from getting a lathe! :)

I like the idea. Very well thought out. What type or brand of colored pencils are good to use??? Thanks for the video also.
