Just a few experiments in turning small objects, not necessarily a set or macthing.
A few pieces from beech. You tell me what they are.

Those are great, and perhaps even useful when you have really small visitors!

Nice work Moshe. Do you have special tools for working small?

romansfivefive – no, this was done on the JET Mini but is shouldn’t be an issue to do on any decent lathe (big or small)
and rikkor – no special tools, however the smaller you go and the more details you want to put in (note that this isn’t particularlry small or detailed) you’ll need smaller tools to get into those places – but smaller tools are actually much easier and cheaper to get by
