I was thinking BOWLS but that haft is so figured it scary thinking about sanding it and just put Poly on it Just to piss off the local wood guild I got a letter from them stating that my work is not to there standers. Im a member of about 6 wood guilds and I teach at them and they love my work and they chanlage me to contest I win a lot of money but our local guild just drinks there beer and cut there fingers and get duis, I havent seen them do anything for over 2 years other than steal my work and repost it as theres they got cought tho by the local paper I know the reporter so when it come to wood working they come and see me or tom Tranhan hes a outstanding turnner the wood guild says his work not good enought neither, SO they can just KISS MY A,

I don't have a lathe. But I would love to get one and try it. I know it's fun. I remember using one in high school. Metals class.
I had woodworking in high school and I hated it. Now I can't live without it. Lol
