Just bough a Rikon 70-100 off Craigslist and some Easy Wood Turning Tools. After that, I got to wood making square things round!
First is a small (3”) bowl of ambrosia maple. Had some trouble sanding, but i think it turned out well.
Second is a bottle opener made from a Woodcraft kit that came with the lathe. Wood is mahogany.
Overall these were good projects, and I learned a lot, happy with the outcome, but I think this makes a strong case for getting a drill press, as drilling straight hole for pens and other kits is tricky by hand.
Thanks for looking.
