I was inspired to attempt turning after viewing all the amazing pieces of art I’ve seen here on LJs. I found a very affordable lathe on Craigs List that was well used and in need of a stand. I brought it home, took it apart, cleaned it up, built the stand and put it back to work. I must say, I think about making everything cylindrical all day…am I losing it?
The stand is a combination of 3/4” Birch and Poplar plywood I had laying around. The box along the bottom is filled with sand to help stabilize and it helped. I didn’t put a finish on the stand out of pure eagerness to try it out, considering leaving it that way. The wine glass and other piece of 2×4 are also unfinished but I don’t care if you don’t. Last is the Hububalli loose ring candlestick finished with beeswax.
