Made these over the weekend.

#6:

Didn't turn out well. Wood was Hormigo Negra. Stain went on blotchy.

Make sure you keep the stem on when you shape and buff. It sucks to have a really tight stem/shank junction then see those edges get rounded and your lines not match up anymore. Nice work. Keep it up!

Very nice.

What tools are you using? I saw the band saw. Sander? Lathe?

Band saw, sanding disk on the end of a drill, files, and strips of sand paper. That's all I have to work with. No lathe. That would be nice to have some day though.
Oh, and a 10" drill press.

How do you drill the bore and shank accurately if you don't have a drill press?


BTW: Heck of a shine on that second one. Very impressive.
