In this next photo you can see my crude lathe set up, perfectly adequate for turning cork;
Now ready to start on the cork. First step is to turn the cork to a rough cylinder, using a surform. It is always handy to have the template on hand for reference;
OK, done with the surform;
Rough shaping with a file now,
And then onto progressively finer sandpaper,
Nice to get this completed with no major dramas!
