I am certainly having fun with the lathe since January. Making brush handles, Mach 3 razor handles, bottle stoppers and pens so far.

Our son's birthday is this weekend, and I am about finished with this handle for him.

It is made of marblewood and finished with 5 coats of danish oil. It has a TGN HMW knot with 19mm plug and opening at 22mm. The loft will be set at 48-50mm pending his preference. I know he likes more floppy knots.
The TGN HMW knot is my current favorite, so maybe he won't like it and I can keep it! Biggrin

Can't wait to see it bloomed.
