Miniature lathe

by brae  

No, I haven't fallen down a rabbit hole never to return.  :D  Life has taken over the past few weeks, but all in positive ways.  In some fun news, friends surprised me with a miniature lathe for my birthday!

They even machined new tools since they didn't feel the included ones were good enough.

Of course, I am super excited but have no idea what I am doing.  Luckily, the gift comes with lessons from the very friends who gave me this marvelous new tool.  Here's the test run my friend did to test it out.

This will help greatly in my pursuit of The Scale Cabinetmaker projects, and I feel positively spoiled rotten!  :D

OOOOHHH…! Boy do you have the Right sort of friends! :) Fantastic gift, marvelous “test run” and incredible learning curve on the horizon! I confess, I am more than a little envious….:) Someday I will put together a mini workshop with the right tools… *sigh*…. Someday!

I can barely manage my dremel. I can’t imagine using a lathe, so I my dad had a full sized one years ago that I played on–for a moment. I always admire your work.
