Here is the first cabinet I mentioned above. This one is for my lathe tool grinder. I am not a cabinet builder and more or less designed this as I built it. Some of the choices based on what material I had on hand.

The wood came from leftovers and scrap except the drawer bottoms. Had to buy a sheet of HD ply to get the bottoms. Sande Ply base with total locking castors. The cabinet box is also Sande Ply with a birdseye maple face frame. The top is soft maple. The drawer boxes are a mystery soft white wood picked up at a garage sale for $1.00 bf, bought a hundred. Drawer fronts are Ipe scraps with pallet wood centers of which one has already split.

Took one of my burl scraps and cast it in resin in a piece of 4" pvc.  Made my first attempt at a sphere.

I'm experimenting with turning green wood. Mostly because I ran out of dry wood. Also trying a few live edge bowls.

Nice job and eye pleasing also. Did you freehand turn the sphere? I have one of the Vermec sphere turning tools because I could never get the sphere really round by hand.

Both nice looking pieces. Is the wood in the pictures still green?

Started with a shop made jig but the resin was not agreeing with my cutter so i finished it free hand. Once i had it close to round i rotated it 90 degrees and stuck it between 2 jam chucks with 1 3/8 holes drilled in it. rounded it off and removed the nub then rotated it back 90 degrees and evened it out.  Next one will be with 1 drop of dye instead of 2.

Been using up a bunch of cutoffs from making segmented turnings. Making a bunch of refrigerator magnets which has become a little addictive. I like the added inlays cut into them.

I decided my Shop needed a Joiners Mallet while recently working on a Rocking Horse. No doubt a Lathe turned handle for  a comfort feel grip would be better than standard stock. Cherry handle and Wormy Country Maple w/ Hard Maple Head

I'm not a real fan of round handles, (I have a couple) yours looks to be large enough in diameter for a good grip without too much effort.  Thumbs Up

Thanks Buck
I prefer to use the lathe to get some profile and then contour by hand. Or sometimes I'll  do a multi axis turning. I like a more ovaled shape so it's easier to index (know where the head is pointing) Here is my large mallet (small beetle)
It's all about what's comfortable in your hand
