Since my lathe stand was reworked as a shop cart (mentioned in my blog http://lumberjocks.com/jgreiner/blog/25037) I had some spare time while I painted the shop cart and the lathe was sitting out on my work bench.
I picked up this peice of wood from the scrap bin at my local woodcraft for $2 with the intention of making a harry potter style wand. I really liked the way the wood had stripes if you angled it just right. I don’t know what the wood is, but it was pretty cool turning for the first time. I need some practice and will need to learn how to sharpen my cheapo lathe tools they weren’t that sharp out of the box and made turning a bit rough.
It was a nice afternoon with a quickie woodworking fix.
