Well have been having fun again and turned this fisherman's priest.

Made from odd scraps of wood I had laying about like Beech,Chestnut and Sapele the length is about 10". I have owned a Robert Sorby Texturing and spiraling tool since about 2010 and never seemed to get a half decent spiral from it, well I did get one when I decided to have a go again. The two red rings are beech which I stained.

Great job Derek, the spirals look very crisp. I never tried that myself. Does the lathe have to turn very slowly to to achieve that result? Well done.

Thanks guys. The spiralling seemed to go very easy this time so I tried again using the same method as the first and yes managed to repeat it so it was not just a fluke.

Ian I have a 5 speed lathe and used the second speed which I believe is somewhere in the region of 600rpm

That's one fancy fishing priest. Beautiful wood combo and the spirals look really good. Another great one Derek!
