So I finally decided to join lumber jocks and chuck up a few of my projects. So here is my first posted project.

Most of the time I make things because I want one or to give them away as a gift. This is one that I wanted.
It is made from Australian River Red Gum and Tasmanian Oak. It is a little top heavy for my liking. But all in all I reckon that I did a good job.

I had to make the main shaft out of 3 pieces because my lathe is not that long. Was a little tricky but in the end it worked out. I was going to use some recycled blackbutt planks for the hangers but turning all 8 of them to the same size did not sound all that appealing at the time. So I ducked down to the local hard ware store and picked up some Tas Oak rod. turning the little end caps was fun.

It now sits in my entry way. The first time that I came home at night it did give me a bit of a fright, as I thought that there was someone standing there.
