Making a wooden face plate the easy way,

I made a 12inch disc sander for my lathe as an attachment and i used my stock metal faceplate so that left me without a face plate to use so I made a wooden one to replace it.

I started by drilling a 17mm hole through a block of beach and cutting a tread in it,

I re-enforced the threads with liquid superglue then turned to shape on the lathe.

I turned the front disc on my router table by spinning it on a pivot point .

i glued the disc onto the turned part by pressing it on with my tailstock.

Why buy it when you can make one.
