I want to cut a bear out of the log.
Here are some inspirations:
Then I draw the sketch in Photoshop:
Firstly, I used the band saw to cut off the sharp edges.
Secondly, polish the Chisels.
Thirdly, I mounted the wood log by a 4 Jaw Chuck, which clamped down on one end of the log. Then I polished the log into a rough cylinder.
PS: the lathe should turn toward myself (turn forward).
The video shows my process:
Unfortunately, the wood cracked during the process.
Finally, I ended up with a snow man.
