After 10 years of not woodworking I wanted to make some pipes so I bought a 3520B. Most pipe makers use a metal lathes. So here is my first pipe. Part of it was turneded and drilled on the lathe and then carved, filed then sanded.

LDL, you thought my first project would be a bowl, didnt you?

Yep. I did figure it would be a bowl. Looks good though.

Glad you finally got it posted and good luck with your future turnings. Hang in there.

I guess your computer liked it to as it kept telling you it was thinking about it. Haaa Haaa
