Made my first "real" thing on the lathe tonight. Had a piece sitting in the
lathe and picked up a gouge to see if I could learn to control it...ended up
with a pretty oak candlestick. Made the hole for the candle with a router in a
table.....nothed a piece of wood for a fence and kept raising the bit and
turning the candlestick until I got the hole right.
Think it looks ok for a first one.
Someday I'm gonna quit procrastinating!
