After seeing the pictures, I think these things look like Orson Well’s war of the worlds machines…LOL !!

I find Bob Hamilton to be of great inspiration, in my adventure into wood turning. Both Bob’s help articles and his videos on U-tube have been of great help to me. Bob’s Tutorials can be found via his own personal web site….although he has lots of articles posted around the Net;

Not anywhere near the master’s quality; these Tea lights were a bunch of fun to turn and a real learning process as well :
Two Tea Lights, made of Cherry, approx. 6” in dia.

Thanks Bob, without guys like you a lot of us would never get this turning stuff figured out.

Very nice looking and well done tea lights Brian. Your developing your turning skills very quickly and it’s fun to see all the different things you are doing. Keep up the good work.

A great looking design. I assume that they are turned as a circle and then have the pieces sectioned off.

Great looking turnings! So you were turning a lot of air here-HuH? Takes a real steady hand and some high rpms to get it done I’ll bet? Nice job and Keep on keeping on.
Sincerely,
