As some of you know, I’m a neanderthal woodworker and the only thing I plug in when I work the wood is a fan. I’m back in the States for a few months and wanted to give woodturning a spin. So I called up a buddy of mine who I knew had a mini lathe and he was gracious enough to show me the ropes.
Here are a couple bottle stoppers that were the first things I tried my hand at. The simple olive wood stopper was my first attempt, and as you can tell I had a little more fun with the cocobolo stopper.
All in all, turning was great fun! I don’t necessarily see myself with a lathe in the immediate future but I can definitely see its usefulness. I also turned a chisel handle, which I’ll post here once it’s finished (I still have a few more things to do to it).
Thanks for looking!
