Hello
To herbC who want some explications and all members of LJ’s

I will explain here how I make my wooden chuck

1 : I turn a piece of wood with the dimension on the picture

2 I drill a hole diameter 0.8 cms and a second diameter : 3 cms ( Depth 0.4 cms) with a Forstner drill

3 I use my bandsaw to cut from the exterior to the hole diameter 0.8 cm
I saw a second time to elarge the cutting ( 2 mms)

My wooden chuck is ready

4 I turn a piece of wood diameter 3 cms and thickness 0.6 cms

5 I put it in the wooden chuck to turn the first face

6 I return the piece to turn the other side

7 I have made two wooden chuck. I use the second wooden chuck to drill the hole in the buttons

With this wooden chuck I make buttons diameter 3 cms and depth 0.4 cms

I hope all the explications will be clear

Comments welcome

(If I’m right, the botton would have been easier to see if it has been turnd from a different color piece. I must admit that I was mixed up here) This is a useful technique. Thanks for sharing.

I really appreciate the work you did to prepare the illustrations. They make it very clear how to make and use the chuck… The part that’s still a little unclear to me is step 4: You say to turn a button blank that is 3 cm diameter and 0.6 cm deep (thick, high…) My question is about creating the button blanks. Do you turn each one individually, or do you turn a 3 cm diameter rod (cross grain) and then slice off 0.6 cm thick blanks? Thanks again for taking all the time and effort to help us understand your process.

Do you turn each one individually, or do you turn a 3 cm diameter rod (cross grain) and then slice off 0.6 cm thick blanks?” I turn a 3 cm diameter rod and I cut off each piece ( thickness 0,6 cm). I hope this explication will help you. And now I’m looking forward to see your buttons Thanks -- Diggerjack-France ---The only limit is the limit of the mind and the mind has no limit Diggerjacks1784 posts in 1885 days #4 posted 10-13-2013 05:49 PM Hello Serge I add a new picture with a “red button” I hope this will be more clearer Thanks -- Diggerjack-France ---The only limit is the limit of the mind and the mind has no limit Roger15280 posts in 1550 days #5 posted 10-15-2013 12:03 PM Good stuff Jack -- Roger from KY.
