    Sure rewarding to watch the pattern come together as you build. You should be pleased with the design.

    Diameters start getting smaller so it's time to turn the OD profile and diameter to finish size.
    We are about as big as I can get on my lathe. :)

    Lots of chips flying today, finished OD profile and turned excess out of the ID. Wall down to 9/32" and we are rough sanded inside and out.

    Now we'll let those dry real good then it's the fun part of turning them on the inside

    What tool are you going to use to turn them on the inside?
    Another amazing piece you are about to finish.
    Was this built on your computer driven jig?

    Starting with the Hunter Tools swan necks, we'll see if I can reach everything.
    Yes on the computer driven jig
    Also, using wedgie sledge for the open segment pieces, I cut myself a 60 deg open segment wedgie 12% open

    Rows 25 - 27 & 28 are cut off :mad:
    Had a catch and broke a lot of segments.
    Rows 25 and 26 are back on and we'll try turning the ID this morning
    Wish me luck
