    Student's bowling pins and ball

    I commented earlier on a student with a lathe project and duplication. Here it is. Yes we know he is missing three pins, but his four year old neice won't know it and the fun will be as thrilling.

    Pins are 10-11" tall. He turned that ball between centers. Burnt the lines on the pins. It is going to be used by his niece. I am proud that he stuck with it, took him about six weeks from beginning to end, threw out two pins, one to skinny of a neck the other to small of a bottom and then it became to short when he got the bottom the correct size.
