If you've got a chuck, a thin parting tool (1/8"), a 1/4" bench chisel
or a small skew and a small scaper or insert tool you can round off the
end of, why not have a go at turning small, really small - as in
miniatures. They're quick to turn so you can try all sorts of profiles
and finishes in 20 minutes or less. In the process, you can also
develop some tool control you can use later on "normal sized" pieces.
Here's a link to HOW TO, and images of a LOT of little pieces to give
you some ideas for some miniatures.
Try it, you'll like it!
