You guys are too kind, thanks very much.
As far as turning so thin goes, I owe that to Paulo at Glaser tools. His 15V makes it possible to eliminate the harmonics and really feel the wood as you cut. Just ordered a full set of his QR tools too. Lets see where that gets me.
The light colored stripes are just Maple, I'm not sure why it looks like that.
My lathes are both JET 1442VS for now. Someday I'll own an American Beauty or a VB36. It just has to happen.
I too have been called Psyco Wyko pretty much all my life. I use to race BMX and later on I raced an Alcohol drag Banshee in the sand dunes. I was a terror in the sandon a 125hp quad hence the tag name.
As far as pictures go, I'll try to have my camera available for a build. I have a habbit of leaving it at work. I do plan on starting another complex one after the holidays.
Again, thanks everyone, you are truly an inspiration.
