As most of you here know, I bought myself a new to me lathe a couple of months back. As life goes, I just have not had too much of a chance to get to know my new machine. Over the last few weeks, I have managed to construct a new sharpening centre, and with the help of MR. Woody (forum member) have gotten my cheap tools ready. I might have even figured out a bit about sharpening….
I have also managed to turn a number of 2×4 of scrap pine/spruce or anything else I have on hand; into toothpicks. I am afraid that tool presentation is still kind-of a mystery to me….. However I am learning.
So this morning I thought to myself, enough is enough, it’s time to try and actually turn a project. Besides; I wanted to try out the new Talon chuck I got my wife for valentines day.
I had a form in my head, but somehow it never really made it to realality…... But talk about having fun… Better than a barrel full of kittens and a tazar gun.
The following pictures are my very first turning project: Nothing like the stuff I see posted here, but maybe someday.
