I put together an article on how I turned those triangle tea lights.  They are kind of fun but watch your fingers...  Smiley

Bob,
What happens if you start with a round piece and do all of our turning and cut the triangle flats last?

Hi, Craig:
Other than only getting half as many out of the same length of stock, I can't think of any problem with doing it that way if you can jig a way to hold them while cutting.  It would certainly cut down on the splintering issue.

Take care
Bob

Looks good, Rasmus!  Is that white oak?  The ray pattern seems more prominent than in mine.

Sure, Rasmus, go ahead.  I have noticed in my website stats I have been getting a fair number of hits from translation sites like Babelfish but I don't know how well they do at translating.  It would be far better for someone that acutally understands the language to do the translating.  If you have only been turning for 6 months then you will also have different perspective on what is important to mention.  After almost 20 years of turning I am sure that I take some things for granted that really should be pointed out.

Take care
Bob

I've done the 4 legged version, but never the triangle.  I'll have to add this to my idea database.  Just gotta watch those fingers, (DAMHIKT) cause you end up turning a ghost image at the ends.  I agree Bob, handsanding on the inside of the legs is a must.

What about attaching (hot melt glue/double sided tape) waste blocks to the sides and then turning?

Hi:
A lot of people do square turnings that way, so it should work fine for these too.  I have never tried it myself.
