The kit I bought came with sufficient parts to make 5 "Gatsby Grande" pens.
For a start, I'll be doing mainly straight turning or with very gentle taper (using the compound slide) sanded smooth. As of now, I've no idea of what I have in my head is doable. Will take it a step at a time.
In fact, I've start some work preparing the blank. This will be posted in my next installment to keep this post cleaner.
Meanwhile, let me know if you have any tips and tricks on this to help me out here. TIA!
