Some more practice.

Made this little spindle stand out of some Crab Apple tree trimmings.

Getting a bit more comfortable with the skew and trusting the lathe to hold.

Need an adapter to make my 4 jaw work, its ordered but not in yet.

(Will fix picture orientation in the future)

Well your turning experiences from the past show you know what you’re doing. Nice work.

Eh I would say more my recent YouTube watching has more to do with it than my previous turning as it was 20 years ago and all I made was a short baseball bat. I am excited to make some nice handles as I like a good pommel and many of my tools seem to be lacking those and I can make the grip size more suited to my self as I am larger guy at 6’4”.
