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.
