a hammer with a large, usually wooden head, used especially for hitting a chisel.
Yup! That’s what I got.
My son and I bought a lathe yesterday (our first) and I couldn’t wait to use it. So, I grabbed a piece of a 4X4 and another piece of 1X1, both out of the scrap bin, and this is what came out.
I’ve never used a lathe before, so I really didn’t know what to expect. It is different than other woodworking I’ve done. There is considerably less moving around the shop from tool to tool. I had to do something I’m not very good at, slow down. This is something I’ve struggled with in all things. Just finding that balance between concentrated energy and peaceful, steady, progress toward a goal.
I enjoyed this very much. You can be sure there will be a lot more round things in my future. I can’t wait to integrate this new functionality into other types of projects as I learn more.
