    Those are really great! I especially love the turquoise-inlaid bass guitar.

    We used to make billy clubs on the lathe in wood shop. We would tell the teacher they were table legs.

    I do mostly turning, not a great volume ( it's just a hobby ), for about 20 years.
    Here's some bottle stoppers. And random stuff

    So who was this Xiander guy, that he got bounced out on his ear so quickly? Had to be a prior perp, right?

    Anyway, spent the day turning wine bottle stoppers!

    My partner for 30 years has a couple lathes and he dabbled in making pool cues.

    When I was in high school in the 70s, we made a peace pipe on a lathe. We made a lot of treaties back then.

    Boceephus, you might look into https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/ for some really high quality stoppers.
    Lots of choices in styles. A bit more cost, but, they will last a long time.
    I have found that the chrome plated ones will degrade over time.

    Did you machine the opener?
    It looks like a robust bit of metal.

    Nice looking shelves.
    I got to do some turning the other day. It was green wood, so it is hiding in a paper bag for a few days to slowly dry to prevent cracking.
    I will post a pic when I get a chance.
