These are my first turnings, all done on my first lathe ‘design’ as detailed by my blog.
The first little button started as a wedge, and was sanded for quite a while. The ‘beehive’ type-thing was my second turning, using a hacksaw to rough in a cylinder, a chisel for the details and yes, a lot of sandpaper. My third turning fell apart into two pieces, but I still consider it one turning for some reason.

These are interesting turnings. You took a novel approach in building these but they certainly do help with handling a turning addiction. :)

Thanks for the post.
