My dad bought me a lathe the other day so I figured I'd make him a call. I turned this one from a piece of eucalyptus I had laying around, what do you guys think?Attached File  1.jpg   8.65KB   11 downloads

I like it good job.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Very nice job. That is truly a classic shape. Hmmmm....all of a sudden I have an urge for a bottle of Coke.I just bought a new metal working lathe. I used to have a little 7 X 10 mini lathe but I was working a stainless muzzle brake and the tool jammed into one of the holes in the brake. So much for the cheap lathe's gear box. I upgraded to a larger unit with all steel gears and more power. Now I can really hurt myself if something goes wrong....LOL

That's a good looking call jawbreaker. I'd like to see some pictures of the ends. What kind of finish did you use?

Thanks guys, Braz, I still need to learn what this lathe will do. I drill the call and use my dremel to shape the ends, I use deft to finish the call.
