stair railing ballister??

What does anyone think about using a ballister for a shape?
I do not have a lathe or access to one and to be quite honest I suck at woodwork. But I was thinking if I found a ballister that had a functional shape then I could cut it down to an appropriate size and go from there. Another question is how would I go and through wire it once I have it the way I want?

I know I know i,m going to get a lot of ......"save your time and buy a Habb's" feedback....

but I want to play too.

keep an eye out for old wooden chairs ...the spindle's work too.most are maple, good for needles.

BOAT fish do count.

woodwork skills:
allot of it centers around manual keep that in mind.

sander paper is cheap... enough... try going to the indoor swap meets

or search the want ads for cheap a mini drill press ...

sometimes local schools have after- hours access to woodshops for

non students.. to learn some wood working skills.....

so ask around...and soon you'll expand your horizon .

A better bet would be to check out They have plug kits with all the parts included. You just seal, prime, paint, clear coat, add hardware, go fishing. A great way to get introduced to the hobby and still end up with a functional plug
