Turning Archive 2006
>First project off my new Powermatic. You'd think I'd do something big now that I have the chance, but this is 6"D x 4"H, foot 1.75", slightly under but I like the look. About 1/8" thick, it is much easier to do on a smoothly running lathe. Amazng grain on this, I never expected it. Cleaned out the wormhole and left it, also left the hole thru the knothole. Finished with Watco and buffed. This is going to my friend who helped with the heavy lifting and assembly last week. It went down a filght of stairs, and I don't want to think of it coming back up.
I love having reverse and such low speed and power.
