So – I finally started playing with my lathe. Mounted a block of wood (not sure what kind) and turned it round. And then this kind of appeared. I was mostly tryng to figure out what the different tools do. I have one that I bought and several that I inherited. Thanks for taking a look.

Looks like the wood may be Oak. Now that you have that new set of tools I bet we’ll see more additions to the gallery!
