First small project
I've got the setup now to turn small projects like bottle stoppers, so I thought I would post this up as it's an official first project that I've completed that I feel is worthy to given as a gift or sold. I'm still trying to get the hang of running the spindle gouge, but practice makes perfect right? I've had a little bit of practice lately, and some of the pieces ended up getting thrown out because of tearout or other problems or I just didn't like the look, but I think I'm off to a decent start. Hopefully start moving on to bigger projects soon. Criticism welcome, it will help me learn!
I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
