Looks good. Don't drop that, looks like it would shatter a sink or tiles.

Looks good. Donyou would't drop that, looks like it would shatter a sink or tiles.

You would be surprised how lightweight it is. Aluminum. Weight is about same as a peace of wood

Ok this is my latest project that is stil in the making, waiting for some material. this is the first time i lathe a piece of wood in a metal lathe witch is abit tricky :P. I first lathe it to a straight & round form and then used the cutting tools (witch are attatched to the lathe, as in not hand held cutters witch you would normaly use for wood lathing) to remove some wood at the places where i neded it, and did the last bits with sandpaper and a rasp. what im trying to make is a barber brush (tall bursh) i have the handle done now and im waiting for material for the base that will hold the knot itself. the wood i used is a dark curly koa and here is some pics. hopfully ill keep posting pics on this project beeing done if everything works out the way i hope for

here is the type of metal lathe im using
