Step 1: Put the Wood on the Lathe and Turn It to a Cylinder
I used my roughing gouge to turn it down in to a 1 inch. cylinder.
Step 2: Next Use the Skew to Shape It
Bring the handle 1/4 of an inch. and make the shape.

I use my sand paper that i got from Rockler and went from 120 to 800.

I just cut it off with a saw.

I used Dr.woodshops pen polish for this but you can do any type of finish
