This week I want to share with you my first project on the lathe. It’s been almost 3 weeks since I posted the last project, during which I dedicated to celebrating Christmas with my family (I’ve also made some presents in my workshop but I didn’t have the time to record them).
I got a new machine for the workshop (Christmas present from my adorable wife ;D): a Lathe (Axminster AH-1218VS), which I was looking for since a year. I’m very pleased with it, but no I’ve no experience in wood turning so I decided to make a quick and easy project for those how like me, are newbies at this discipline.
I must admit that I’am a remarkable interest too Christopher Nolan’s films (I guess as much as some of you ;)).
So I came with the idea to make the spinning top that Cobb uses like a Totem in “Inception” film. For this project I used a scrap piece of walnut and I’ve finished with cyanoacrylate. Again, you can see how much I use my scroll saw due it’s versatility (in this video I’ve used for resawing a scrap piece of walnut about 30mm thick).
I hope you enjoy this project and the video.
Regards to everyone from Barcelona!
