Don is heating up two pieces for preparation while spinning them on the lathe.
In this picture, Don is honing in one of his joints to make sure it is as straight as possible.
Don is expanding the reservoir in this project by heating the area and blowing into the piece.

Here is Don's primary spinning lathe for glass projects.
Don also has a secondary lathe for larger works that require a custom gib.
This is an annealing oven which is used to cure the glass by heating it slowly and evenly.
