Start to finish for Ghostly, Part II

So the pen for Ghostly's friend is coming along nicely.

The adhesive dried overnight. Now the wood is trimmed down to be flush with the brass tubes.










In order to ensure that I'm able to match the grain on the CRAZY grain pattern of this piece, I mark the inside of the tubes where they'll meet on the assembled pen.











I trimmed the corners off to make it a little easier to get started on the lathe. And now, the fun part! Here is the wood transforming from a square to a cylinder before it can be shaped.










And here's the wood getting its rough shape.


Here's a link to Part III.
