Very nice tutorial, pictures, and comments.  Will utilize some of these procedures in future projects.

This tut was where I first heard of split mandrels. Made my own at first - could never get the split centered - these are worth the money to buy (they're cheap) as they're centered and balanced properly; they spin true.

I'm looking at this guys grit sequence and thinking he's nuts - but look at the piece (and hit his web site - he consistently makes little masterpieces of polished splendor) - there is no arguing with his results.

This may seem strange, and this is an old post. But I use a website called Denvergemcutting for tutorials. The guy has really good rough, so that helps, but his work is awesome too. Lol they're not meant to be tutorials.
