Here is a little project I did yesterday.
It was inspired by this project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/8934
Once I knew where to get the kit I ordered one. Now I see that Rockler carries them also.
It’s made from European Beech with Gabon Ebony. It didn’t turn out as good as I wanted it to.
The reason for the six sides was to keep it from rolling around on the table. After truning it I found that it barely left any flats. Oh, well.
Making this confirmed that I hate the lathe, and turning wood. Too much like work!
