I love the way that the goblet (?) seems to come out of that shoot. Super cool!

-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!

Once I got in there, I just couldn’t see fit to uproot it.
Thank you, Buddies.

Beautiful,Mark. I like how you didn’t try to carve the stem straight (or if you did try, the Camphor thought otherwise).
Thanks for sharing.
