A friend needed an espresso coffee tamper. This is Zelkova and Padauk with an aluminum collar. It turned out pretty nice but next time I may make it a bit more stumpy. It was a challenge to mount it on the lathe and made me think. I likely could’ve made it more efficiently than I did, but I got there in the end!

100mm tall, 52mm diameter. (4” x 2”) Zelkova, Padauk, Aluminum. Turned on my midi-lathe with easywood tools. Finished with chestnut melamine lacquer.

Cheers! (time for some coffee me thinks)

that’s pretty neat, did you turn the aluminum collar on the lathe as well?

Thanks everyone!!!
I didnt turn the collar, it was an aluminum tube I cut to length. only polished on the lathe… it worked pretty good however.

Ha, Thanks James… not professional at all. Its just sitting on a coffee table up against the back of the couch as a backdrop. You don’t need pro equipment, you just need to think about where you can get some nice soft light and be aware of the background and angle…

Have your say...
