That will probably dominate the project if I do it, but I'm willing to show just about any Q&D work, almost always fun stuff.
    Did you have a go at this? Very cool idea; curious to see if others have tried it.

    Haven't done it, yet. Probably will be after the weather isn't as inviting, and the woodstove is fired up. I did pick a mug to use, so that's progress.

    Sounds like step 1 is complete!

    We've been cooling off here in the Colorado mountains too, and have just started using the woodstove again.

    I guess I should take the camera out, anyway. Got my old lathe working and my brother-in-law helped with two gunsmithing projects since hunting season is almost upon us here. I may just grab that old cylinder and start on it. Shouldn't take too long, though I do tend to get sidetracked when digging through my parts bins. I'm probably not alone there, though, ya think?

    I often get sidetracked before I even make it to the bin. This mug was itself a sidetrack. Even my avatar is a product of a sidetrack. I was cleaning up the cutoffs from my metal moxon vice, when I noticed that they made some neat patterns.

    I did take notice of your avatar. I, probably like most on this forum, don't throw much away and repeating shapes are often inspiring for little doo-dads.
