These little bracelets make beautiful gifts for friends and co-workers.
Step 1: Grab some wood
I found one side that was somewhat flat, then marked a square and cross-cut the wood to get a square(ish) block of wood. then marked a rough center and drilled a hole large enough for a worm screw for your lathe chuck. then cut the corners off to make it a little easier and safer when you start roughing it to shape.
