Jeremiah and I had our last regular weekly shop class tonight. Our finale was learning more about what a lathe can do. He learned all the parts of a lathe and some of the various chisels. And he watched me make a few tops. Before he got there, I turned the "Battle Top Arena." Tops are Hard Maple with no finish and the arena is Poplar. Arena: 1.75" x 11.25" The pictures are of him showing everyone from the lady's meeting his new project.

(My wife liked them so much, that she had me make a few more tops to take to work tomorrow. They are not going to have much to do, so they will do their own Top Battle.)

My wife last night said I wish I had a few of those tops. I'd take them to work tomorrow because things are going to be slow. And we can play with them. So, I went out to the shop and made four (4) of them for her. Well, they ended up having a competition on who can make them spin the longest.
