Not truly turnings.....done without a lathe.
I made the blanks, then stuffed them on an expanding sanding spindle & chucked them into my drill press. All the shaping & finishing work was done with files & sandpaper.
Walnut & Aspen Sandwich, with colored pencil Inlay. NOT happy with the results of the epoxy, going to try a different approach on a second one.
Purpleheart & Aspen Sandwich:
Walnut with Guitar String Inlay - again, the epoxy looks gimpy, trying a different approach:
Walnut blank, shaped & polished, awaiting inlay of guitar string - epoxy only in bottom of grove:
All this done on a benchtop drill press, primarily with nothing but sandpaper. Most sanded to 2000 grit. Finished while spinning with a wipe-on poly.
Yes, Kids, I am beginning to be Jonesing for a mini-Lathe.
