On the Lathe

Scott called me down to the woodshop (aka garage) to check out his progress on the stave project. Luckily, I grabbed the camera on my way down so you can see what I saw!

I think it's so cool to see a piece while it's still on the lathe!

Here you can see the part above the ring of pear wood.  

Scott points out where he had narrowed the lip to make it possible for the two pieces to join together.

And here's the other part ...
Scott demonstrates how the pieces fit together.
 Pretty cool, huh?

After Scott finishes shaping the two pieces inside and out, he will glue them together and do some final shaping before putting on finish. 

Stay tuned for more photos as the project progresses!
