Ian asks, and answers: "What do you make when you got a lathe for Christmas and an Easy Rougher for your birthday? An Egg, of course!!"
That's pretty much exactly egg-sized... which is hilarious because Ian began this turning exercise with a chunk of oak sized for the fireplace! He wanted to pick a challenging wood for the Easy Rougher, and what better than white oak from the fire pile? Then he started turning, and turning... and the chips were flying... and once you get the chips started flying you never wanna stop... and now all that's left is this lovely egg, all smooth and buttered up with some beeswax.
