This is the first bracelet that I have ever made. As with most things I kind of made it up as I went. Is there a better way of holding it other than a jam chuck? Made with oak and I think walnut? I got the wood from a box of scraps from my father in-law.

-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!

Very nice. Not experienced enough to answer your question about the jam chuck. Free wood is the bestkind!

Nice bracelet. Check out making wooden bracelets on YouTube.
Some use jubilee clips and home-made collets.

Blue, I haven’t made a bracelt myself but I saw a YouTube video where the guy glued the blank to another piece of scrap wood that was then attached to a face plate. He turned and sanded the bracelet shape on the outside and then used an adjustable holesaw mounted in a chuck in the tail stock to cut out the inside which freed the bracelet from the block. He then just sanded the inside using a drum sander mounted on the lathe. There are probably other methods you can find on YouTube as well.
