Well this is my first official post on this forum, but I’ve been a very long time observer of some pretty amazing projects you guys have made.

This is a carbide lathe tool I turned from some maple (with stainless steel ferrule), modeling it after a tool I saw at a local woodworking store. I put some rubber spray paint on the handle for grip and all in all I’m happy with the project (mostly because it works well as a tool which is the purpose).

Let me know if you guys have any helpful critiques on the tool or turned handle.

Well done. It the bar from a pry bar? How did you mill it to accommodate the insert?

Thanks for showing!

Thank you, It is certainly not professional but has worked so I say it is a success. I forgot to mention I spend hours trying to figure out what to finish it wish and finally just picked polyurethane (with that rubber spray for the black portion).

It is a pry bar, good guess indeed! I cut it off with a hacksaw and filed down a platform then drilled and tapped the end. Sorry no milling involved, I’m a low class kinda woodworker ;)

Have your say...
