That is cool, and if you replace your carriage head bolts with countersunk machine screws, you completely eliminate a chance of catching something on one of those revolving bolt heads.Thanks for sharing.Well done.

Cool, and you could easily make different sized donuts to accomodate various sized pieces. Thanks for sharing

Unfortunately they go through 1/4” ply which wouldn’t leave much strength if flushed with a counter-sink. I used such plywood to allow for some flexing. I do however agree with you that no protrusion would be better.

I don’t have a lathe yet but when I get one I will need to make this jig and try it out. I looked at the link and it makes sense to me know. Thanks for sharing.
