When I first got interested in wood turning I started off with something pretty simple and a handful of chisels. Much to my wife's dismay I soon outgrew it and upgraded with the promise "this will do everything I need". Well it kind of didn't and last week I drove through to Rotorua to pick up this! It may not look much but it allows me to try out heaps of new techniques.
My first experiment with my new toy was to turn up a coffee handle out of kwila. It was awesome! Follow this link to look at my other coffee machine handles and knobs.
