You lucky man you......She could have brought you home a tee-shirt......
Please, please, take detailed pics throughout the build! So many, and so detailed, that even an idiot like me couldn't mess up a build!
Really looking forward to seeing how this turns out. How do you plan to cure or dry the wood?
Of course you don't NEED a lathe, but you know you want one
That's a killer piece of wood, and a great start. I'm looking forward to the rest of this project.
If past performance is any indicator (and I know it is), this is gonna be really nice.
That is going to be one beautiful pipe. That wood grain is amazing, it reminds me of marble!
Have a sense of humor, keep a sense of humor, don't lose your sense of humor....

Should be OK by Now.
Epoxy filler is a wonderful tool if needed. Comes in many colors.

You are so right I do want one. Will probably have one with in a month. I have to be careful to get it into the shop without the Mrs. seeing it. I have my eye on this cheap POS

I am lucky to have such a nice piece (shaped as such) just laying around for this particular project.

If you go the CL route, stay away from the lathes that have a single tube down the center. They're better than nothing, but the tool rest is a PITA, and the tailstock doesn't stay in line with the drive spindle. I'm going to use mine for a few more projects, and then it'll be time to upgrade (or at least step sideways into an old one that needs some rehab).
