Nicely Done! Great Detail Work!

I just turned a group of tops last weekend, I used some longer billets and turned multiples at the
same time to see how the process would work. After roughing the shape of each top on the billet,
I cut each individual top from the billet and used a bowl chuck to finish the tops off and then reverse
chucked the top and finished turning the handles. The solid composite materials are really nice materials
to make tops with, the material is perfectly balanced compared to some woods which can affect the balance of the top when spinning.
