I remember calling it my beer mug that i was working on and the teacher correcting me.. Not for beer. I did above average in the class and was related to him through marriage. The lathe was my thing, then started glued blocks, of variable thickness.
When you get that deep it’s makes it easy to get thrown. The one before this was made from a solid block of wood. It kicked back when I was milling out the inside and made the thing explode into pieces. Attempt #2 this one was a success.
