I found this idea somewhere online…might have been here on LJ, might have been youtube…not sure…I like to give credit, but I just can’t remember….if you do a google search, you’ll find tons of these out there…not a new idea…
I used a bolt, a washer and some scrap Walnut Burl that I had in the shop…I like to use that stuff down to the last drop.
The bolt head was too large, so next time I’ll use a slightly smaller one…I had to spend way too much time grinding it down, but for the first one I ever made, it’s all good…the time to make it will get shorter each time…(I’m ashamed to say how insanely long it took me to make, and how many trips to the hardware store next door it actually took….at least they are used to seeing me four or five…or ten…times a day…)
I also have some steel bolts that I hope will be easier to work with and some brass ones as well…I like the look of brass better anyway….
