Shaping the outer shell

Shaping the outer shell was a lot of work. My lathe is really a drill press used for spinning the wax blank and the cutting tool that you see here is a square piece of high speed steel sharpened to a 45 degree angle. Shaping the outer shell produced 3 five gallon buckets full of wax shavings!
