Woodturning for fun
I love working on the lathe, though I haven't done it for years and don't even own one.
Here's a couple pics of a chess set I did for competion when I was in high school. This was literally the 3rd or 4th project I ever did on the lathe. It started off one day as a "wonder-if-could" kind of self challenge. When I did this, I didn't know they made miniture lathe tools or copiers (that would have helped on the 16 pawns).
To me the lathe is one place I can really relax and feel like an artist with a blank canvas.
Let's see some of your favorites.
