I made a mandrel to turn carrots and avacado nuts, and I'm making a chess
set, the lathe is a hand drill, tied down in a workmate with a shoelace(its
like a workbench thats a clamp in the middle) and a block of wood under it,
the mandrel has teeth pointing in.:)

drill

( )                ^shaft  ^inwards pointing teeth, that slide into place.

Use a band clamp to improve rigidity.

if i had one... and besides carrot doesnt need a brace, I did a bit of wood
in it, but all i have is light hand gouges, I ended up using my pocket
knifes as a skew, and then the drill got too hot.  so that was the end of
that.
