Amalio, how on earth do you do that type of lathing?

First picture of yours it's hard to determine the size of object.

Then suddenly finger is holding it, and I know directly how small and delicate the part is.

Your skills amazes me .......

What brand of lathe are you using?

Hi Gaetan.
The lighter wood that appears in this model is boxwood, which in Spain is known as Amarican boxwood. The darkest wood is cherry.
As for the finish, the only thing I give it is what is known here as filler. It is a nitrocellulosic primer that is given to wood before varnishing it. It dries very quickly and sands very well and is colorless.

Good Evening Amalio;

 

I agree with Druxey; that is a very clever way of making the same shape of baluster. Thanks for sharing it with us. A beautifully constructed model.

 

All the best,

 

Mark P
