Hello everyone.
Long ago saw the work on turning the LJ’s, so that led me to find out price and more. After a while suddenly I was given an offer by a metal lathe! And I said “I have to try.” It was another time to make the legs and go while preparing some tips, and some attempts.
Finally this weekend I was free and I could devote a little more.
Already had some wood glue because I had asked for a rolling pin. I really loved working and outcome. Use some hand tools, and others, with the carriage of the lathe. First part completed and satisfied.
As I remained some time, look at my memory something simple. Remembered that Marpintero, had spun. So try this. Good result, so I made two more models.
Very happy with the result. Admired the work and expanding the list of “to do”.
A big hug to everyone.

Innovative use of a metal lathe. Remember that speed control is really important on a lathe !

Very good acquisition Gerardo. Glad we could inspire the first job. I like your tips straight model, although most beautiful, rounded tips are more awkward to use. A hug and good luck with those turns!

Muy buena adquisición Gerardo. Me alegro haber podido inspirar el primer trabajo. Me gustan las puntas rectas de tu modelo, las puntas redondeadas, aunque más lindas, son más incómodas para usar. ¡Un abrazo y suerte con esos giros!
