[/IMG] Well I've managed to turn a few things.These are a small selection of bottle stoppers, 3 dibbers and a honey dipper. My first serous attempt. Now I have learnt the hard way. I found the sharp tool to be an absolute must. the speed of the lathe can vary as long as the tool is sharp. I have actually experimented, with not the norm, but, an array of tools(all second hand) and not particulaly recommended for the job, but, as they were sharp I found the wood took on a different look. No sharp tear outs and a very smooth finish. So that was my very first make mistakes and learn by them. I do hope the image has come through.

You had a bad (really bad) address for the photobucket link when I checked the properties for it. I finally playes around with it and figured out what it was supposed to be. This is the correct address:

However, I could not upload it in your gallery to post it in your thread here because I'm at my parents this morning and they don't have a image editor that uploads the image in a format that the forum accepts.

All you have to do to post it in your gallery is click "manage attachments" button and follow the yellow brick road.
