haven't been on much, but I got bored today and decided to work on the lathe.
It's made of black walnut wood that was grown on my grandpa's tree farm in rural Missouri. It's 54mm in diameter, 42mm wide, and really light. I'm going to put some aluminum rings on it tomorrow. It definitely wobbles, but it is playable, and I think some extra weight might smooth it out. A little cosmetic work to take off the rough spots would probably help too, and I can replace the thread inserts with others if need be.
I'm not sure why, but I'm really proud of this one. it's definitely not the best player I've made, but I like it.
what do you all think? Any tips or suggestions?

Thanks guys :-)
Mr J, I'll have to make another one for that. I can't give a time frame though; I'm going off to college soon, so things are getting hectic.
I put the rings on today, although I broke one half while doing it. I'll make another one in the near future.
