So I started getting into the lathe recently, and took a stab at turning a Bottle opener handle. Although I wouldn’t consider myself “Advanced” by any means on the aggrevated apparatus known as a lathe, I really liked how the handle turned out, especially the finish.
Then came the true bane of my existence, hardware. I never like installing hardware, and the evidence in right there in pictures 4 & 5. Despite pre-drilling with the recommended size drill bit (1/2”) and lubing up the threaded insert (also as recommended) I wasn’t even half-way done when I heard the heart-breaking sound of Walnut cracking. Ugh.
Like the title says… Sometimes I really hate Woodworking.
Thanks for looking. As always, comments welcome.
