Or you can purchase rod stock.  There are a lot of nice options available to experiment with without having to cast your own.

Shipping is a, uhm, female dog. Oddly shaped objects tends to demand premium shipping.

Been a while since last I posted in this thread.. I'm sure several of you spotted my thread on handle shapes over in the brush sub-forum, but the last few weeks I haven't gotten to turn much - busy at work, got sick for a bit, getting cold - but due to a situation outside our control my wife and I realised that my nieces Christmas presents would not be ready for Christmas.. so I've been in the shed for a couple of hours making a couple of lidded boxes.

+4°C in the shed with the heater on - that's just a hair over 39°F for those who prefers that. Enjoying myself mightily, probably finish them up tomorrow. Wondering if a thin layer of teak oil on the lids will look good... better test on some scraps Wink

Hans, I'm so glad I live in Florida.  I see your new lathe is getting some practical use for items other than shaving brushes.

As a small Christmas present for two of the younger members of my family, I decided to turn a pair of small, lidded boxes - vaguely mushroom shaped. Very vaguely...

Norwegian spruce wood, construction lumber (4x4), sanded to 240 grit and finished with nothing more than mineral oil.

Spent a little bit of time on the lathe, with a birch tree branch I found in the wood pile.
