This is a great beginner project for new wood turners. And the honey dipper is beautiful craft for the kitchen.

But the good news -- you can make dozens and dozens of other fun & exciting projects for your home on a small wood lathe. Don't worry about your skill level -- you don't have to be an "expert" woodworker to use a lathe.
