Here is another fun and quick project for your lathe and can be completed in a couple of hours. I started out with a 1 1/2" mesquite turning square 9 to 10 inches long. Drill a 1" and a 3/4" hole at one end. Turn, sand and finish to the desired shape. The spinning part can also be turned, sanded and finished between centers. The top spins remarkable well spinning up to 3 and 4 minutes. gb
Thanks for the comments. I've made some that I used a sharpened concrete nail for the point. They would spin well over five minutes. Kids love them and they are durable.
Time for y'all to dust off that lathe!
