You guys are hilarious. No it's not fake, I can barely download the images in photoshop much less do any thing as fancy as put LB's head in there. I had a good laugh reading all of those responses however. I do make my own tools. These were turned using jewelers screwdrivers that I sharpened.
today I am trying to turn even smaller. I have made new tools from .030" piano wire. The skew works well the gouge is still to thick for super tiny goblets. I'll take some photos when I get the smallest I can do. I haven't measured my latest one. I'm not really sure how to measure it with the tools I have. I'll have to take it to the science lab and let them put in on one of their microscopes that has a scale. I'm guessing it's about .035" wide and maybe 045" tall based on visual observations of tiny drill bits next to it.
