This is my first solo lathe project (I made a bowl in a class before) and was the result of some practise work I was doing with the skew. Part way through my half beads I changed coarse and came up with this little top. The turning isn’t all that smooth and is just from a piece of 2×4 laying around but it spins fairly well and I’m sure my three year old will enjoy it.

That’s cute. It brings back great memories. I’m sure your son had a blast with it.

Have your say...
