I had this block laid up for a while and decided to turn it after I put my lathe back together. It is maple plywood and measures 6” dia. x 4 1/4” high. It is finished with EEE and Shellawax, but I think I will lacquer it to a higher gloss
My Craftsman lathe quit yesterday and I had to tear it completely apart to get the motor out. I found out that the motor was okay electrically, but the armature was rubbing the field windings. It was not bent but it is put together with two aluminum end plates with bearings in the center. I turned one end plate around 180 degrees and put it back together and it runs fine now.
I turned this bowl and wine bottle stopper just to try it out.
The stopper is made from a core of Mesquite and it is wrapped with Cholla cactus- both from the Arizona desert.
Just goofing around!!!!!!!!!! It is finished with clear matte spray.
In the top I embedded a cartridge case from a Smith and Wesson 500….......Compliments of LJ Hillbilly shooter
