It seems that every spare moment I get, I go out and turn something on the lathe.
Check out all of these tops. These are only the extra ones. The kids have their own with their own stuff and I have given some others away.
You can see two small bowls that I turned also, the bowls that the tops are in.
I call this one the "Drunken Sailor" because when it spins down, it does a funny "drunken sailor" dance. I don't think that I have ever actually seen a drunken sailor before.
I have also been making some spoons. Turn a piece of wood into a spoon shape, cut it in half on the bandsaw and carve out the bowl and there you have it... A SPOON! Two actually.
We have also been turning some pens with friends. Here they are in action!
