I bought a Sheppach lathe about 2 weeks ago and a set of marksman HSS chisels and gauges.
I have hardly had a chance to get near it yet due to home DIY projects that had to be finished. So the wife
said anyway and I had to agree with her as the dog-house gets lonely around 3 in the morning.
I did get to do this though. It’s a piece of beech, pulled from the log-pile on my brother-in-laws farm.
It’s about 5in sq and 1.5 in high. One coat of poly to finish but prob needs more.
Any thoughts on turning beech? It seems a lovely wood to use.
