This is my favorite out of all 4. I had a lot of fun building it and turning it. It is the first time I have a made a segmented turning. I added some brass brads to give it a steam punk feel.

Great job and I like the jig you made to do the drilling!
All are real nice but I agree this one is the top.

Nice!!!! I love the design of the ship….very similar to Buck Rogers or Bug’s Bunny (ie. Looney Tunes!). Did you come up with this yourself or plans?

I like the last one best too. Being a utilitarian, I would like to see it also function as a container, but it’s very cool just the way it is. Very nice work on this.

Fun group of projects. Really like this one. Kind of reminds me of Marvin the Martian’s ship.
