New Turner!

>Hi All.

A month ago I asked everyone what a good starter lathe would be for my 9 yr. old son. I would like for him to be able to "work" with Dad when I am in the shop. Well, we went with the Jet VS Mini. We finished our second class today and he wants to share his art work with everyone. (Really I think he wants to see his little mug on the internet...lol)

Here is his mini bat. Was a little intimidated at first. Started out as a 5x5x12 chunk of hard maple.

This is him with his Maple pen. I think I will need a wholesaler soon for kits!

I would like to thank everyone here for your time and information! Sorry for the poor picture quality.

Jimmy and Tyler
