What do you do when you have a bright young man show up that’s never run a lathe? Well, we threw him at the MADE Lathe and the Hardinge HLV-H. Kelsey Watson, @kwats42 , found us through a recent post by @sethgould and is fortunate enough to live nearby. Or should we say we’re fortunate enough to have him live nearby? He came down for a visit, hung out a bit; and we put him to work making bottle stoppers. You have to say these are pretty nice stoppers, and when you think they were his first attempt at running any lathe, let alone a rose engine, they’re even more impressive.
It’s no wonder too. He was recently awarded the @garrettwade_tools “Maker of the Year Award.” Kelsey has his own Instagram feed and YouTube channel. Look him up, follow his IG, and subscribe to his YouTube channel.
Thankfully, since he lives nearby, we have a feeling we’ll be seeing him around pretty regularly and very glad of it.
The stainless stoppers with the distinct three O-ring design are from @stainlessbottlestoppers and are of the highest quality with exceptional finishes.
