New to the wood lathe I have been trying a few different things recently. First time turning a spindle this small and a little trickier than I thought. After breaking the first one, I found a helpful video showing how to use my hand to support the back when turning (isn’t youtube great!). Now I have the hang of it and made this one for my son and after he took it to school, I ended up making several more for his friends… :)

Nicely done-is that engraving work all over the wand?
Or did you wood burn it for the effect?

Your son should love that wand.

Thanks! I ended up burning the detail in the wand.
