Here's a few of the things I have spun out on the new lathe, which is just such an amazing piece of machinery:
|The longworth came in handy for the first bowl I turned on the new baby - Apple about 9" diameter.|
|The first bowl from the new machine, this is a piece of Apple Dad picked up for me 15 years ago.|
|This was actually the first project turned, it will be a lamp once the hardware arrives.|
The base is some of the same apple as above and the shade is pine.
|My Walnut and maple handwheel|
|Oneway Handwheel hub.|
|The reverse side.|
I have a few offcuts from tool handles that are on the shelf next to the lathe for small projects. I used the first two pieces I grabbed - bacote and cocobolo.
The shapes for these things are everything under the sun, I did a few image searches and headed downstairs to make my own interpretation. These are apparently for re-capping a bottle of leftover wine; but I have never heard of that phenomenon - leftover wine? huh.
Back to the shop!!
