Don't be discouraged, one if these day with hard work and determination you'll get the hang of things. ;)

Kidding aside that is downright amazing.

Wow!!!

no contest... hands down winner.

Wyko, you keep getting better and better. You CAN quit your day job and start giving lessons. :yes: How about a picture of the lathe you use? I suppose Baileigh will give you one for winning.....:blink:

The prize is $1000.00 in tools. It's not over til tomorrow @ noon so someone could still drop a bomb on me. my lathe of choice is the all mighty Powermatic 4224. I absolutely love this machine. Tons of features & smooth as silk. Kind of a mess from the aftermath of this project though.

Seems like a high speed rotary tool would be the only way to get those delicate openings. I know nothing about turning...except right and left on green arrows or after coming to a complete stop.... well sorta', it's Michigan. :blink:

Way to go, Bill. I cannot imagine any serious competition with that beauty.

Thanks Gene but it's never over til it's over. There are some very, very talented people here.
I have a cheap version of a foredom from harbor freight. It vibrates a bit but gets the job done. Some day I'll treat myself to a good one. One chatter though and you have scraps on the floor.

Thanks, somewhere around 60 hours. A lot of stop & go time. This was my first one but I think the next one will go much easier.
