Using the Gouge, turn the block of wood into a cylinder. Then use the flat tool (along with the gouge) to make a uniform cylinder that has a diameter of 11cm. If you don't have a caliper, you can use a c clamp with a ruler (that's what I used).

Once turned down, take your ruler and mark off a 14cm section; this will be the overall length of the LED. From the left of that section, mark off 2cm and 10cm.

See picture for what each part is for.

NEVER I MEAN NEVER WEAR GLOVES ON A LATHE!!!!!
If the glove got caught in the piece your turning it would snap your wrist and bring your whole arm into the lathe
