newb alert.

This is the second thing I made on my lathe. First was a pen. Now I tried to make a snowman. Extra 2x4 that had split down the middle. Cut off a piece and turned this. Couldn't seem to get perfectly round but I like it. Any tips on how to make it better? The finish is just bees wax.

What tools did you use? Watch some of John Lucas' videos, they'll help.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Roughing gouge to round it off. A parting tool to make the hat. Angled skew? To make the round snowman parts. Only tools I have right now. Buying as I go. Ill look those videos on YouTube.
