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

Edit : To Serge

A picture with a ” red button”

Nice, Jack! If I understand correctly, #4 is to get the buttons themselves and #5 shows half of a botton turned, right ?
(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.

Best,

Serge

Jack,

Thanks for the information. 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.

Herb

Hello HerbC

Thanks for the kinds words

You said : “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?”

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
