I thik so too.

Great job.

Now sign and date the very top of the head. That is the part that wont get beat up.
Then you can always look back and remember when you made it.

Thanks. I was kind if nervous to try it out. But I really enjoy turning now. Its always cool to look back at the first thing you made.

That is just awesome. Making a mallet on the lathe is on my to do list. I just hope that when I do, it comes out as nice as what yours did. Great job

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

That's a great Idea. But I don't have a drill bit long enough to bore through the stock. I'm guessing it would be around 18" any tips?
