Made these tops just for lathe tool practice. I guess you need to make something to learn how to use the tools. These things are addictive. Can’t stop making them. Great way to use scrap wood pcs. The kids (8-80) love them and I give them away every chance I get.

I have the same problem
Can’t stop myself
I must be in that group of 8-80..ha ha
I give them away so I can make more.
I give them to adults and they go crazy.
Like to be a fly on the wall to see how long they play with them.
Great fun
Art you can play with
