Just for Fun

A little bit of fun turning. Had a go at this little string puzzle from David Springett's book "Woodturning Full Circle"
A great exercise in multiple turning

Oh very nice, might have to try and turn one of those.

My tool kit is almost complete, only a few more to get.

The turning looks easy. It's the hole up the middle which would take a little care, I guess.

The hole is only 4" long through the centre piece so drilling from both ends on the lathe is no problem
