Woodturning #3 - The Gavel

Originally uploaded by ..Sally..
One of the most satisfying aspects of woodturning is how quickly a project moves from beginning to end. This little gavel - my first attempt at "spindle" turning, as opposed to "faceplate" turning - took no more than an hour to make. I used a piece of birch that was left over from the table I made last year.

Sally and the kids are in Ft. Worth this weekend, giving me a chance to work on some long-delayed projects at home. This little gavel, in fact, represents procrastination from more important tasks. So, I'm off to Home Depot to buy paint and some other things.
