Well if any of you have seen my latest ShopQuest blog entries then you know I have been trying to get my shop in shape and get my new lathe set up. I actually bought it over a month ago now and it has just been sitting until I got a quiet spot. So been working hard to clean the shop up and took the time today to build the stand. Takes up way less space than my old one.
I of course had to turn something on it to try it out. Pic 3 shows my first turning on my new lathe.. YAY!! sorry bit excited. I also used a few new new tools. I got a Sorby Spindlemaster from a sale at my club and I think it will work great, just need a little bit of practice with it.
I am looking forward to putting this lathe to good use and learning some new tricks with it.
The stand is all 2x pine and the pull/ornament is Holly/Oak(I think).
Thanks for looking.
