Well, my insert for my chuck still hasn’t arrived and thinking about my new lathe just sitting there all alone was killing me so I turned another sphere. I really need to think of some projects I can do between centers. I usually only use my tail stock to support the chuck or when preparing a blank for the chuck. Anyway, its still fun to share, thanks for looking.

This look fantastic!!!


I have made over a dozen of these – all without the aide of a lathe and all perfectly round!

I need to get some PVC pipe, and build me a egg/sphere holder for my lathe, and make some outline templates—because I cannot eyeball such things into a good, round shape.

So, I am even more amazed at those who can

Kayvon, make an oak cannon and you’re in business.
