This is another creation that just happened on my lathe. The raw materials origin came from my scrap bin. I guess you can call it ”Scrap Bin Art”.
My woodworking friends are always giving me a hard time, because I never seem to buy any wood.
The Duck on the table is one more of my projects I’ve not yet entered.

a wood lathe is on the top of Rick’s wish list for our workshop. I’ve never used one so I’m looking forward to the experience.

Your Scrap Bin Art is magnificent, not only to look at but as a contributor to the health of our planet. I guess it fits all categories of Reduce (not cutting down another tree) Reuse (giving the wood a second life) and Recyle (as I’m sure the sawdust is used for another purpose).

Looking forward to seeing the duck up close and personal.

Thanks Debbie.
I bought my old Craftsman used lathe about 40 years ago for 20 bucks, complete with chisels. You can’t buy one chisel for that anymore. Since then I’ve made an awful lot of shavings.
A lathe thats taken care of will last you a lifetime. I just replaced the bearings in it last year for another 20 bucks. If you can find a used one for a fair price, I think that’s the way to go.

What’s wrong with not buying lumber? Especially when you can make nice furniture with leftover (I hesitate to say waste) from another project (or the firewood pile!).

Thanks Mike.
You can’t find O’malley routers on the INTERNET anymore. Weird!
