1st of all, this is a collaborated project between my neighbor & me. My neighbor (he is over 80), asked me if I would turn a cane for him out of a 3”x3” piece of Poplar he had layin round his garage for a long time. He still does a little woodworkin himself, but, he doesn’t have a lathe. He actually made the handle for it. Pictured here is the cane that I turned (this is my 1st attempt at turning a cane)(my part is done), and the handle that he is going to finish. He just roughed it out so we could get the length right for him. OH, and check out that tool rest…...(plz be careful if you try this at home).................... It’s the longest pipe clamp I own….. I had to “shim-up” each end of my lathe, but, hey, it worked fine for rounding this 35” piece o Poplar with a 3/8” piece o Walnut laminated in the middle. I will try & get a pic when he is finished doing what he wanted to do to it. Thnx for lookin and any comments are appreciated.
