This is a concept that my Grandfather used to make when he was alive.
It is a two part turning, bottom is spindle, and top is more like face plate or plater.
Both top and bottom parts were actually two pieces glued together with 2 layers of paper glued between. The paper allows a good bond, but one that can be broken later.
Bottom = Wood paper paper wood.
Top = Wood paper paper wood.
Turned the bottom spindle into shape, left a 1” tenon at the top end, then removed from lathe and seperated the bottom halfs.
Turned the top like a plate or plater, cut a 1” mortise or hole in the center, then removed from lathe and sperated the top halfs.
Took a top and bottom and glued the mortise and tenon together. I am inpatient on holding this, so a small screw was used to secure.
Hang with favorite means of haning pictures.
