It always gives me pleasure to see my son show some interest in the shop. The other day he decided he needed drum sticks, and wanted to make some... now! 
We didn't have any plans for this, I really didn't expect this to get as far as we did. So.....
.....we slipped a 3/8" dowel in the chuck and stuffed the other end into the tail stock and off we went! He was a bit timid at first, especially when I made him take off his baggy shirt and chain. Safety first! In this pic he's using the gouge, I only briefly showed him how i work, (i'm a total novice at the lathe).  He seemed to have an eye for where he needed to remove stock for the taper.
These aren't John's hands, or his project, but this is how he smoothed out his drum sticks. John had great patience with this project. He just had to get close to the shape he wanted, and this home made sanding block evened it up for him. 
Of course now he's very proud of himself! And now I get to listen to him drumming, on everything! Hmmmmm.....Maybe this wasn't such a good idea!?! Mom's not too happy with me either!
