These 3 winged boxes were the results from my previous post of attempting to achieve turning a miniature 2up2down wings project. Pic 4 is a poor result Pic 5 shows the lids of to show I did hollow them. Just for
info the wings on these little buggers hurt as much as the big ones.

Very cool, Bob, you are getting real good at it. I’ll bet the texturing takes more time than the turning!!
Cheers, Jim

Dave, got the bee in the bonnet and just kept going until I got the one I wanted. Pic 2 came out Ok after the burning. Jim, texturing took some time but beats sanding on the lathe, those little wings have a bite.
Pete, finally got it, now life is back to normal, damn cold this winter so will spend time indoors. Thanks for the comments.

They are neat, Bob, and I agree with you, they all hurt.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Have your say...
