Making Fishing Floats (bobbers) on a Hand Cranked Lathe

Building a hand cranked lathe and turning balsa fishing floats (bobbers) I have always been a bit envious of fly tiers; not because of the work the produce but the iddy, biddy workspace and the vice. With this project I wanted a fly tier's workspace and similar tools but instead of creating flies I wanted to make fishing floats. As always getting from the initial idea to a usable float was a bit of circus but I think I got there in the end.
