    That's a smashing Pencil mark! Hope its not a silly question; how did you add the BMW image?
    Measure Twice, cut once, then force it to fit.

    Not a silly question Tony,
    It's called "label casting" where you print an image onto a specific size piece of paper, this is then wrapped around the tube, sealed and resin cast in a pressure pot. I don't have the patience or skill to do this, apparently it's very difficult to line the seams, what I do is pay some extremely talented people to produce the blanks I want, this was a Scott Walker blank....aka Sawes on this forum or Mr resin on FB

    I drive a 1999 Mercedes and gazing at the BMW badge I imagine the Mercedes symbol would look great as well. I join with you in admiration of Pauls casting and your talented turning.
