Wood Blocks for Glass Blowing

A borrowed Lathe

One of my glass blowing students lent me her lathe while she went overseas for a few months. I cut down a Tristaniopsis Laurina (alias water gum), an Australian tree that grows like a weed in Northland. It was us big enough to turn a woodblock for glass blowing. It was a bit of a struggle as I don't really know what I am doing but it turned out OK. The next one will be better because I have joined the Northland Woodturners group at the Quarry Arts Centre and am now able to get advice, watch demonstrations and get  the right tools for the job.
