Here is another Christmas Present,, this one I made for my wife…
I have to do that or she takes away shop time. :-)
She used it during Christmas but forgot to pre heat it,, to see if it works better than the plastic ones.
I bought mine at WoodCraft—————-> http://www.woodcraft.com/family.aspx?familyid=20158
, but have found them here as well → http://www.smoothturning.com/main.sc
I chucked it up in my jaw chuck, and then drilled out the center with the proper sized Forstner bit.
Then used my Hunter #4 to fit the wood to the insert.
Completed the turning with spindle gouge.
Signed the bottom, (( Lots of Room)) and sanded/finished.
This is made out of a 8 year old piece of Butternut.
