Yes, bowling pins!!!
they didnt cost much at all (you can get them for free, if you know the right people). the one on the left still has the original plastic on it.
they were fairly easy to turn, the first one I split the plastic off with a hammer and chisel before mounting it on the lathe. that was a pain in the butt!! the next one I mounted right on the lathe and turned the plastic right off.
WARNING!!! be careful if you try this!!! the last picture shows some hollows spots inside the pins, JUST BE AWARE THAT YOU DONT KNOW WHAT IS INSIDE!!! I am going to make some caps to hide the voids. I thought about melting some lead and filling the holes but they are already 22 and 28 ounces! thats heavy enough for what I use them for!!
