turned scrap

I am learning how to use a small wood lathe, one that can handle small bowls, plates, boxes, pens, chair legs, pepper grinders, candle holders, etc.

I’ve made only a few things that I am courageous enough to actually show, and only to my wife at that. This is Mimi’s ear ring holder. That’s supposed to be an angel on top.

My signal to noise ratio, so far, is extremely low. The noise part has accumulated into a pile of … turnoids. :-)

On a few of these scraps I have gone so far as finishing one side of them with sanding/polish. I call that Fine Art Turnoids.
