Sooo, that’s how that is done :-) What did you put on the back side to screw the plate on the lathe at the 1:30 mark? Nice vid by the way ;-)

Nice work. Nice chatoyance in the wood when you turn it by hand… I wish I’ll be able to do these things you do someday…Real educational video too :) I really need a lathe soon :P

I don’t use my lathe much. If I ever learn to make beautiful things like that plate I might not ever do anything else. Sooo beautiful and the video was very entertaining. Thanks for posting this.

TopamaxSurvivor… The hole I drilled in the plate blank was for the screwchuck. Thanks for watching!

revieck, You are welcome ;-)) Thanks for the show!! I saw the part where you put the hole on the screw chuck, then at about a minute and a half, you truned yhe plate around and seem to be screwing it on, then turned the hole off the front side of the plate. There isn’t room for another hole on the other side is there? Must have mounted something for it to screw onto if you are still using the screw chuck? BTW, there were a few scenes of putting something on teh plate just before that, was it glue for a bock with a hole in it?

TopamaxSurvivor, at 56 seconds I’m turning a dovetailed foot into the end of the plate so I can exspand the jaws of the chuck in to hold the plate when I turn the plate around. At 1:02 I’m putting the chuck on lathe, witch is already on the back of plate. In my video” From barns to bowls” you can see how the chuck is used. I was using CA glue in some fine cracks in the wood.
