I know it looks like a murder weapon, but you have to realize that turning one of these without the proper chucks make them into little darts that tend to shoot off the lathe. So a little respect for at least the danger I endured to make this.

I do have a good spindle collett coming in the mail. So they will get better, this is just a little test piece.

Thanks for looking, and why don’t the spell check work on collett, colett, colet, all red squiggles.

The bowl is birch.

just never know when you might need a good weapon….
