MGP, Looks like you are on your way to turning junk into treasure. As far as attaching the piece to the lathe I just put it between centers and rounded it up and turned a small tennon on the bottom. Turn it around and chuck it up and slowly hollow it out. I knew if the tennon broke it would be firewood so sharp tools and small cuts worked out well.

Wow, I am so amazed at your use of recycled material. It look as if it was new. Great work If we had many like you then maybe we will send less and less stuff to the dumpster and there will be less worry about the environment and global warming and all that ****.

global warming

Where I grew up there were these low spots in the ground, caused by glaciers...
You may have heard of them...

They call 'em the Great Lakes.

I'm kinda glad that the globe has warmed...

I'm gonna go burn something so's the ice doesn't come back!

But, indeed, a fine use of would otherwise be landfill.

Sorry 'bout the thread drift there...


...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Well, today I brought home some nice Cherry legs off an old chair and alot of "Nice" bamboo flooring which will become pens and stoppers. The chair legs should become some nice pens. I'll post some pics when I start.
