There is a challenge for the fall meeting of the local IAP turners. Eggs. The original intent was to turn only with a skew. I tried. Nothing but pain and hardship! :)
Showing off my pretty blank
Sizing up my egg
Last shot of attempt #1. Shortly after this I got a massive catch with the skew and lost the blank
Blank #2. Skipped the skew this time and got much further
Sorta pointy, and the end where I parted from the headstock wasn't perfect. Next one should be a bit more refined.
