Saw Cap’n Eddie Castelin’s video a few weeks ago on turning medallions and pendants with and off-center jig ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtbEJ7snpP8 ). I just had to give it a try!
These pendants are between 2” and 2 1/4” ... turned from cherry and mahogany scraps. I made a waste block similar to the one Eddie uses in his video.
The jig gives you a lot of flexibility in terms of the design … I decided to keep it simple until I was sure of what I was doing.
The jig comes from Ruth Niles ( http://nilesbottlestoppers.com/Pendant-chucks.html ). I bought the complete package ($85.60 including shipping) as it includes jig components for the bottle stoppers Ruth Niles sells. BTW, she is first class … a real pleasure to deal with.
