This is technically not a project by definition, but more of an exercise. I inherited a lathe from a deceased relative. Nothing fancy, I think my great Uncle bought it at a discount tool house (Harbour Freight). Anyway, I’ve been dying to put it to use. I had some left over cypress from another project so I proceeded to glue a few pieces together to create a block that could be turned. I drew the design up Saturday morning in about 30 minutes and then got started. I have about 4 hours in the whole thing and think the final result is not bad for a first timer. I mean that with 100% sincerity. I have never used a lathe prior to this.
